Tutoring is one of the many services offered that many TRiO Student Support Services participants benefit from throughout their course of study. Tutors are assigned based upon the ability of the participant to benefit from tutoring, the availability of funding, and the availability of a qualified tutor.
The Tutor Request Form and the Tutor Application Form are also available in our office located in the Student Union Building.
Request a Tutor
If you are a TRiO SSS participant and would like a tutor, stop by the TRiO Office located in the Student Union Building and complete a Tutor Request Form. This form is also available on this website. Be sure to fill out form completely, indicating clearly when you are available to be tutored. Drop your completed Tutor Request Form by the TRiO Office. The Academic Coordinator will review the form and compare your schedule with the tutors’ schedule to find a tutor that can work with you. You will be contacted as soon as a tutor is found and times appear workable.
Sometimes a request is made for a subject area for which we do not have a qualified tutor. In that case, we will do our best to search for a qualified tutor and contact you as soon as one is available. We ask that you contact our office after two weeks and speak with the Academic Coordinator to check on the status of the tutor search.
