Tutors and tutees may engage in tutoring sessions for math and writing regardless of their respective locations by collaborating via the Internet.
Alfred State offers free peer tutoring services for most courses. Peer tutors are students who have earned an A or B in a course and have received special training. Sessions are usually face-to-face, but online tutoring may be arranged upon request. Laura Giglio, peer tutoring coordinator, may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. On the Wellsville campus, Marlee Cannon, tutoring coordinator, may be contacted at email@example.com.
Math and Tutoring Labs
Many members of the faculty volunteer their time in the tutoring labs. Both scheduled appointments and walk-in assistance may be obtained in the labs. The Math Lab is in room 102 and the Writing/Tutoring Lab is in room 237 of the Student Development Center.
Professional tutoring is available in writing, grammar, math, and literature courses.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses. SI is provided for students who want to improve their understanding of course material and improve their grades. SI is funded through the Perkins Grant.
Attendance at sessions is voluntary. For you the student, it's a chance to get together with people in your class to compare notes, to discuss important concepts, to develop strategies for studying the subject, and to test yourselves before your professor does, so that when he/she does, you'll be ready. At each session your SI leader, a competent student who has previously taken the course or a member of the The Learning Center staff, will guide you through this material.
