What faculty are saying

What is tutoring?

TUTORS have been providing individualized academic support since Ancient Greece. Their work takes many forms. Our tutors and consultants use kindness, questions, critical dialogue, and responsive instruction to help students build on their strengths, connect to course material, and gain confidence as learners and thinkers.

Every appointment is different, but common session uses include: 

Reviewing course material
Studying for an exam
Mapping out a paper
Discussing challenging texts
Developing study strategies
Practicing math skills
Locating and citing sources
Planning a revision

Mission & Vision

Learning Commons Mission

The Learning Commons serves students by reflecting and magnifying their strengths, by valuing interdependence and self-determination, by honoring each learner’s experience, by providing responsive and individualized academic support, by building an inclusive community, and by connecting students with tools, guidance, and resources that enable them to work at the edge of their ability.

Learning Commons Vision

We aim to build an inclusive, connected community actively pursuing its own evolution, attentive to research-supported practice and shifting student needs, attuned to the complexity of the individual, and responsive to the mind, character, and innate curiosity of each learner.
