Our Goals

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 an equitable opportunity to develop positive attitudes about themselves, their studies, and their learning skills. The ultimate goal of tutoring is to guide students to independent learning where the student no longer relies upon the tutor.

One

Tutees are given an equitable opportunity to become actively engaged in course discussions. They are given a safe, open environment to ask questions and express ideas.
Two

Tutees will be given opportunities to become more skilled readers, note-takers, and strategic learners.
Three

Tutees will learn how to effectively manage and/or work in a study group with builds teamwork.
Four

Tutees will learn how to utilize all resources available for their own success, including fellow classmates.

As an active learner, the tutee accepts responsibility for their own learning which results in increased self-confidence and steady progression towards their own educational and personal goals. Our Center is dedicated in creating a meaningful experience for our tutors as well. The benefits of tutoring are:

One

Real world experience that can help them achieve their employment or career goals.
Two

Develop strong communication and leadership skills.
Three

Build confidence in their ability to make a difference.
Four
