Tutorial Services

Tutoring is offered in subject areas such as English, mathematics, business, accounting, and statistics. All students have access to these free tutoring services, whether they are taking classes at a bricks and mortar campus or via Stayer Online. Tutoring services are provided by full-time and part-time faculty as well as professional tutors. All of the tutors have backgrounds in the subject areas in which they are tutoring.

Campus-based tutoring schedules vary slightly, but typically these face-to-face tutoring services are available in the late afternoon Monday through Friday and on Saturday morning in order to accommodate the needs of our adult student body. To participate in campus tutoring, students can either make an appointment or drop in for a campus tutorial. Students should check with their Academic Officers for a tutoring schedule and information on how to schedule an appointment. Information about online tutoring can be found at .

Online tutoring can be found in the BlackBoard Course Shell under the Tutoring tab along the top of the course home page. Live tutorials in a variety of subjects and essay/writing submission are available. Submitted writing takes 24-48 hours for returned feedback, so students need to plan accordingly.

For all tutorial sessions, the student should come prepared by bringing course materials, having tried to do the required course reading and/or homework, and having formed specific questions for the tutors. Although the instructor is always the first person the student should turn to for further clarification or assistance, a tutor can provide additional one-on-one assistance to help in reaching educational goals.
