Tutoring Resources, Study Session and Supplemental Workshops
- Writing and Learning Center supports academic achievement by offering peer-to-peer learning opportunities in a welcoming environment. Undergraduate and graduate tutors are available for one-to-one or small-group consultations on any activity, assignment, or exam for over 250 courses and subjects across all six colleges. These free, collaborative consultations are student-driven, which means that the learning experience is propelled by the specific questions and individual needs the student(s) brings to the session. As a result, the center offers a unique space on campus dedicated to student-centered learning.
Get peer-to-peer support on the following:
- Course assignments
- Problem sets
- Exam preparation
- General Study Skills
*Note: The Writing and Learning Center has assumed tutoring programs from across campus including those formerly offered through the Math, Statistics, Physics, and World Languages and Cultures Departments as well as through the College of Engineering and the College of Business. Please consider the Center as your one-stop shop for academic support.
Study Session forms study groups for students who submit a request to study with a group focused on challenging, selected courses in the Colleges of Science and Math and the College of Engineering. Each group is led by an upper-division student and meets twice weekly throughout the quarter. Not for academic credit.
Supplemental Workshops in Science and Math courses help students master math concepts and promote collaborative learning, including concept enhancement, problem-solving and mock exams. Workshops are held twice a week and earn one unit of academic credit. Because the workshops are interactive, the more students are involved, the more they learn. The workshops are guided by trained facilitators who are upper-division students.
