The Tutorial Services offered on campus are an important component of academic success. Qualified undergraduate tutors are available to all students at no charge. Tutorial sessions are offered in a centralized location, in our Tutoring Center on the 2nd floor of the Saint Francis University Library and Learning Commons. Students can schedule appointments in groups or come in to get help on an individual basis. Students in either the SAGE or OASIS programs can also use a set amount of tutoring hours as a substitute for mandatory study hours.
Our tutoring program is certified through the International Tutor Certification Program sponsored by the College Reading and Learning Association. Any tutor that earns a regular, advanced, or master certification is more than equipped to assist his or her peers.
Tutoring is Not...
Tutors will be working with students to assist them academically. However, in order for tutoring to be more effective, students must fulfill some responsibilities themselves.
Tutors are successful students at Saint Francis University. They have been selected as tutors because they have strong academic backgrounds and possess qualities essential to be successful students.
The tutor's objective is to guide and help students develop and strengthen their own study skills so that ultimately, they can work on their own with confidence. It is not the duty of the tutor to do the work for them, but to help them to help themselves. The tutor accomplishes this by asking questions, making suggestions, proof-reading/editing work before submission to the instructor, etc.
