Sessions Structure

The tutors will work with students on a one-to-one or a small group basis.  The sessions are arranged to fit your schedule and generally last 30 minutes each. It would benefit you if you attempt, before coming to the session, the homework and prepare for the session. This would help the tutor identify specific problems you are having in the course.


Call 724-938-5893 to schedule a tutoring session or stop in to ask when a tutor is available to meet with you.
