Tutoring and Academic Engagement Center
Grant Schoonover, Director
413 Knight Library
The Tutoring and Academic Engagement Center offers resources and guidance to help students improve their learning and the quality of their course work.
Free tutoring for mathematics and writing is available throughout the week on the fourth floor of Knight Library. Writing tutors offer feedback that aids students in taking the next step in their studies. For math help, tutors clarify concepts in algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. Remote support for math, writing, sciences and language is also available.
For consistent, ongoing help throughout the term, students should consider small-group tutoring. Groups of six or fewer students meet two hours a week for support in specific math, language, and science courses.

Small study groups for challenging classes allow students to gather once a week outside of class to practice course concepts and strategies. Peer leaders attend the classes and design collaborative activities for each group meeting. Offerings typically include groups for accounting, biology, chemistry, computer science, and mathematics.
One- to 3-credit courses offer strategies to improve the quality of course work, enhance learning, and boost academic confidence. Subjects include time management, test-taking, memory improvement, speed reading, and more.
Learning specialists are available to meet students on an individual basis to discuss specific concerns related to study skills, writing, and math/science as well as provide additional resources that help students reach their educational goals.
Throughout the year, the center's Get Savvy program features free workshops on academic success topics such as maximizing time or preparing for midterm examinations that are available throughout the year.
The center offers preparation for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). These fee-based test preparation workshops are designed to help students gain knowledge, skills, practice, and confidence.
