Weekly Tutoring Groups

NEW! Weekly Tutoring Groups


Weekly Tutoring Groups is a new program at the AEC beginning in the Spring of 2017. It will be directly connected to those courses which historically prove to be most challenging to undergraduates, including first year courses in STEM disciplines. Students will be able to meet together once per week and work with the help of a trained peer tutor to better understand what they are being taught, strengthen their problem solving skills, and learn effective ways of working with the material.

Weekly Tutoring Groups will be made available on multiple days and times throughout the week in efforts to be flexible and able to accommodate all students who are interested; if you are familiar with our previous Supplemental Instruction (SI) program, you will notice that Weekly Tutoring Groups offer an ease of scheduling that SI did not. This program will offer students an opportunity to join a small group that is committed to regular ongoing attendance. Group size will be capped to enable the tutor to better attend to the group’s needs.

A commitment to regular attendance is another key characteristic of this new program. With Weekly Tutoring Groups, students will be invited to join groups at the beginning of the semester, and available time slots will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis. Students who don’t join a group right away but would like to later in the semester will be able to join groups where space is available. A students who chooses to leave a group during the semester for any reason will be permitted to; there is no risk of over-commitment.
