    What types of tutorials are offered?

    T-CAEIL currently offers one-on-one and group tutorials (supplemental instruction). Students may schedule appointments or visit peer-tutors upon availability in the Resource Center. T-CAEIL also offers online tutorials as well as tutorials in the Resource Center during the hours of operation.


    What happens in a tutorial session?

     

    The sessions are led by peer-tutors who have performed successfully in the courses. Each session gives the peer-tutor the opportunity to assist students with strengthening their knowledge and developing better skills within the courses. The peer-tutor applies the necessary concepts and tools as it relates to the coursework.

     

    During a session, the peer-tutor does not complete any assignments for the student. The peer-tutor will not proofread writing assignments or provide answers to solving problems for quizzes, tests, study materials, etc. The student is responsible for applying the appropriate writing techniques and applying necessary concepts for completing assignments within the coursework.
