Types of Tutoring Available

Writing tutors will discuss your work as it develops, giving you feedback about your paper's strengths and weaknesses. With your tutor, you can address different aspects of your writing, such as organization, development, thesis, wording and mechanics. Writing tutors can help you with papers in all subjects. Please note that your tutor will not correct your paper for you, but help you discover how to improve your writing on your own.

Math tutors will work with you on practice problems similar to those that you are given as assignments in your courses.

Science tutors will help you to review the material covered in your class, typically using visual aids such as diagrams and even some models, depending on the course.

IFT tutors can assist you with any basic computer procedures and applications.

If you are interested in becoming a tutor, please contact Nilda Roman, Tutoring Center Coordinator at 610-372-4721, ext. 6248.
