TUTORING CENTER
 

The Tutoring Center is committed to helping students develop the skills needed to succeed and flourish as they advance in their academic endeavors. The Tutoring Center strives to work with faculty to understand, develop, and improve academic support to supplement class learning; recognize and respect the rights and equality of all who seek assistance; provide well-trained professional, paraprofessional, and peer academic support specialists; and foster an open professional learning-centered environment.

The Tutoring Center provides free academic support in all subjects to all students at AUK. Tutoring is provided individually, in small groups, or in Supplemental Instruction sessions coordinated with faculty. TRC services are designed to help students improve their study skills, increase their understanding of course content, enhance their academic performance, and encourage them to develop a positive attitude towards learning. Students are encouraged to become independent and successful learners through individual tutoring and academic skills workshops. TRC staff and tutors possess high academic standards and excellent leadership skills, and are thoroughly trained to provide students with the most effective learning strategies individualized to their particular subject matter, course requirements, and learning style. The center provides a range of services that include explaining challenging concepts, discussing assignments, and providing reinforcement of classroom instruction. Students can schedule appointments through the Tutoring Center's appointment scheduling program (TutorTrac) or they can drop in for assistance. Tutoring assistance is available Sunday through Thursday.

The Director of the Learning Support Services (LSS) supervises all activities related to the Tutoring Center and collaborates with faculty, department chairs, and deans of colleges to continuously develop more effective tutoring and academic skills workshops. The Director reports to the Dean of AALSS.
