Tutoring at Trinity
The Academic Services Center offers free tutoring in a variety of courses to undergraduate students enrolled at Trinity. Because students learn in different ways and have varying needs, tutoring is done one-to-one, and in small groups. The one-to-one tutoring instruction is open to students who have been recommended by their instructor, advisor, or individuals who have discovered they need assistance to be successful in their classes at Trinity. Most tutoring services are available on a walk-in basis during specific hours; however, individual appointments will be arranged as needed.
Free tutoring is offered in various subjects, but we do not offer tutoring in specialty subjects. We offer content tutoring on a one-to-one basis designed to respond to individual learning needs quickly and flexibly. Tutors are undergraduate students who excel academically and they are trained and directed by full-time professional staff as well as attend training meetings to remain current in tutoring techniques. Tutors are available to help clarify assignments and to illustrate ways to correct problems.
Students who need tutoring may contact us in three ways:
- Walk-in for tutoring help. Consult the Fall 2017 Walk-In Tutoring Spring 2018 Walk In Tutoring Schedule and report to the Tutoring/Math Center (LIB 101) at the time listed.
- Complete a Tutoring Request Form. The Director will respond by email with details about meeting your tutor. If you do not receive a response within 2 business days, contact the Director again.
- Contact the Director of Academic Services to discuss your situation and request a tutor.
Faculty may also refer students to receive tutoring and should encourage them to complete a request or visit the Center during walk-in hours. Students may receive up to 3 one hour appointments per week. Students may receive additional tutoring at the discretion of the Director.
If during the course of an academic term there is a need to provide group tutoring for special classes, the Director will hire, train and supervise tutors who will be available to offer group tutoring in diverse subjects. Every attempt will be made to offer group tutoring sessions at a time, and if possible place, that is convenient for students involved.
In an effort to meet the tutoring needs of Trinity’s students, we offer walk-in tutoring assistance each semester. During the specified hours, tutors are available to assist students on a walk-in basis without a scheduled appointment. Students are welcome to come to Math/Tutoring Center (LIB 101) with their course materials and questions. Tutors will be on hand to cover a variety of subjects, answer questions, and provide tutorials on requested topics.
The content of each tutoring session is a private matter for Trinity students. Your tutor will not share the content of your session with anyone unless we have your written permission to share this information.
