The Tutoring Center is a place where students with diverse academic needs gather together to receive learning assistance. The mission of the center is to provide students with an opportunity to further develop their learning skills and understanding of course content.  The tutoring environment is one that fosters the development of a collaborative working relationship between the tutors, tutees, and staff.


Vision and Goal

It is our belief that educational success is achieved by understanding and enhancing one’s own learning process.  The Tutoring Center staff is committed to providing students with the opportunity to develop positive attitudes about themselves, their studies, and their learning skills.  The goal of tutoring is to guide students to independent learning.  This is accomplished by providing tutees with the opportunity to be actively engaged in the discussion and manipulation of course material.  As an active learner, the tutee accepts responsibility for their own learning, which results in increased self-confidence and steady progression towards educational and personal goals.
