WHAT'S NEW WITH THE TUTOR CLEARINGHOUSE?
Beginning Summer 2020, the Tutor Clearinghouse is prioritizing Group Tutoring to continue to meet student tutoring demands.
Group Tutoring consists of up to five students, in addition to a Group Tutor, and meets weekly for 1.5 hour tutorial sessions. Group Tutoring is available for introductory courses that have, historically, experienced high demand for one-on-one tutoring through the Tutor Clearinghouse. These courses have primarily fallen within STEM and social science classes, as well as introductory language courses (numbers 1-3). Other courses that fall outside these broad categories, which have also seen robust demand for one-on-one tutoring, will also be considered.
Individual Tutoring is very limited and is intended for students who demonstrate a specific need for individual tutorial support. Individual Tutors meet with their tutees for one hour a week per course. Here is the application to request an individual tutor.
Students who are approved for an Individual Tutor are also strongly encouraged to join a Tutoring Group.
Tutoring sessions may entail:
- going over key concepts to help solidify understanding of the course material
- working through example or practice problems
- answering questions and reviewing course material
The Conversation Partners and Resident Experts programs have been discontinued.
