ARE YOU PREPARED FOR TUTORING?
Our center exists to support your studies. We can help to clarify key course concepts and through peer-led discussion refine your understanding. This conversation demands active participation which in turn requires that you attend all your classes, read your textbooks, prepare and review well organized and copious notes, participate in class discussions and conscientiously attempt your homework before seeking assistance.
WHO WILL BE YOUR TUTOR?
Our tutors receive extensive initial and ongoing training. The majority are peer tutors who have received at least a B+ in the courses that they wish to tutor. Most have taken these courses here at R-N. In addition, every tutor has a solid overall academic record not falling below a 3.0. Finally, our tutors provide personal and caring service and stress the benefits of early preparation and regular study.
