Small Group Tutoring

Small Group Tutoring matches you with students from your course and a peer tutor for a regular weekly meeting to enhance your understanding of course material. This is achieved through a collaborative approach. 

To sign up for tutoring, go to TutorTrac.

Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction integrates tutoring directly with lecture material. SI leaders regularly attend SI courses and then hold weekly drop in SI sessions outside of class where they can help facilitate understanding and collaborative learning among classmates as the semester develops. Currently SI is offered for most freshman and sophomore level biology, math, chemistry and physics lecture courses.


Success Coaching

In a free, personalized, one-on-one Success Coach meeting, students will meet to talk about their academic experiences, identify areas for growth, and create a customized, realistic plan for success.  For example, students may choose to work on study skills, time management, notetaking, stress management, exam preparation, or other learning strategies. Success Coaches are highly trained, friendly, and knowledgeable graduate students who can help students identify opportunities to take academic success to the next level.  

To sign up for Success Coaching, go to TutorTrac. Questions? Contact Sam Siner, Assistant Director of the Tutoring Center, at ssiner@luc.edu
