Support for Your Students

Learning and Tutoring Services hires student from a variety of majors. Our diverse population of majors represented amont our student staff allows us to tutor a with breadth of subjects; however, we are unable to support all of them. Our support offers are determined with regard to DFW data, demand, funding, and student candidate pool.  


Tutoring is led by enthusiastic peers who are both trained and academically successful. Through friendly conversation and guided practice, tutors help students access confidence and competence in their learning. Tutors use non-directive questioning, vetted resources, and descriptive demonstration. Their main goal is for visitors to embrace challenges as opportunities to become more independent and capable problem-solvers and learners.

The Writing Center offers support for all student writers, regardless of the course in support of the All University Writing Requirement. Since they are process-oriented, as opposed to product-oriented, tutors guide students through the writing stages (brainstorming, drafting, revising, editing). Learn more about The Writing Center or contact to inquire about supporting your students. 

The STEM Success Center offers course-specific support for select courses in BIO, CHEM, CS, MATH, and PHYS. Select courses are chosen by demand and our ability to staff them long-term. Learn more about The STEM SC or contact to inquire about supporting your students.
