The Academic Success Center is always seeking motivated students who would like to work as a Peer Tutor, Learning Assistant or SI Leader!
What does a Tutor do?
A Tutor with University Tutoring (UT) conducts tutoring sessions for a variety of math and science courses and establishes a peer teaching and learning relationship with one or more students. During these sessions, tutors work with students to promote an understanding of the subject-specific content and enhance the students confidence and independence by incorporating study strategies on how to better understand the topics.
What does a Learning Assistant do?
A Learning Assistant within the TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) Program conducts engaging tutoring sessions for program-eligible students and assists them in achieving academic success. In addition to subject-specific tutoring, a Learning Assistant helps students develop effective study strategies and skills to implement within the classroom and serves as a resource to help them navigate the University environment.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leader
What does an SI leader do?
An SI leader for a given course attends all class lectures, takes notes, reads assigned materials, and facilitates four study group sessions each week. During these sessions, the SI leader integrates how-to-learn with what-to-learn in a fun, interactive and inclusive atmosphere.
