WHAT'S NEW WITH THE TUTOR CLEARINGHOUSE?
The Tutor Clearinghouse prioritizes Group Tutoring in order 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.
