Tutoring



Tutoring in Action

 

FREE tutoring services are available on the main campus to all currently enrolled Southeastern students during the fall and spring terms.  Historically, services are offered in core courses common to most degree programs. Available session times, courses covered, and qualified tutors vary by semester.  

Qualified peer tutors are trained to assist students with the following:

  • Developing effective learning strategies and fundamental skills necessary for learning course content

  • Becoming active and engaged learners

  • Identifying and solving problematic areas in order to effectively clarify information

  • Integrating application of course concepts and test taking patterns

  • Increasing problem solving and critical thinking skills

  • Improving academic confidence

 

Scheduled-Appointment Tutoring

A limited number of appointments are available Monday through Thursday on a first-come first-served basis, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.  Appointments are scheduled depending upon the course requested, tutor availability, and the availability of the applicant.  Weekly sessions are held through the last week of classes; tutoring is not available during finals.  To fill out an application, come to the Student Union Annex, north entrance.

Applicants are scheduled for one, 45-minute session per week.  In order to serve more Southeastern students, applicants will be placed in small groups of four students with the same instructor; notifications are sent via university email.  It is important that students come prepared with necessary materials, attempted homework, and questions.

There is an appointment attendance policy in place. Students are asked to contact the Center in advance at 985.549.2434 or by email at learningassistance@selu.edu if there is a conflict and they cannot attend. However, after a total of three missed sessions (whether cancelled or no-show), all appointments will be cancelled in that course for the balance of the semester.
