Course Support & Guided Group Study    

Deeper understanding, extra practice at applied theory, and intellectual skill building combine to differentiate students who attend tutoring and those who don’t. Course support is student-led support for success in courses. Peer learning consultants guide learning while working through difficult course concepts and example problems in 1-On-1 and/or Small Group sessions. Students can attend scheduled sessions as needed throughout the semester, and should be prepared to bring specific questions and course materials. Guided Group Study provides large groups with interactive group study sessions that have been designed by our Supplemental Instructors to reinforce course content in a fun and relaxed environment. These sessions provide the opportunity to meet other students in your class and form your own study group.
