Tutorial Services

Faculty members are strongly encouraged to refer students for tutorial services by completing and submitting an Early Intervention Report.  Students seeking to schedule tutoring sessions should complete and submit a Tutor Request Form.

All students conditionally admitted and in poor academic standing, are required to enroll in tutoring, actively participate in academic skills workshops, and meet with AESP advisors on a scheduled basis. To ensure that the necessary support is in place, AESP academic advisors and faculty advisors will monitor and track their progress.

Some students may also need additional assistance in writing, reading, or mathematics. Your academic advisor will ensure that you receive the appropriate supplemental instruction or tutorial services through AESP, the Writing Center, and Math Lab. Your academic advisor will also interface with the Living Learning Center Coordinator in your residence hall and make sure that you are receiving services during the evening hours.

Supplemental Instruction

  • Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a new collaborative learning tutoring initiative through AESP that will assist students taking courses in the Natural Science, Humanities, and Social Sciences
  • SI sessions are structured and designed to tackle difficult topics and material developed by the instructor to help students on a weekly basis
  • Sessions are intended to help students develop and improve a particular skill set and help students improve their problem-solving abilities
  • SI covers particular topics each week to create, to improve, and to help students sustain good study habits throughout the semester; consequently, sessions are designed to help students who attend weekly.
  • The sessions are lead by a trained undergraduate and graduate student who works with the instructor to develop review sheets for the sessions
  • Data indicates that students who attend SI sessions on a repeated basis make better grades than those who do not attend SI sessions
