Update and Thanks from Tutoring Services

The preliminary numbers are in! This summer, Tutoring Services made 168 one-on-one tutoring matches, serving 106 unique students for a total of 670 one-on-one sessions and around 900 hours of one-on-one tutoring.

Our Biology/Chemistry Learning Center (BCLC) and VCT Open Lab (VCTOL) were also open for business. Offering 32 hours/week, the BCLC served 629 visits by 115 unique students. Open for 4 hours/week, the VCTOL welcomed 30 visits by 13 unique students. (See a list of all learning centers.)

We are grateful for the campus’s support in referring students seeking help our way and directing them where find our temporary office and tutoring location in 1103. We also appreciate the academic support many of our students found at TWLS, the MLC, and the BUSTC Learning Center this summer. Big thanks are also due to the several instructors who helped us reach out to great new tutors for subjects we had no tutors to serve (and to HR for the corresponding stacks of paperwork we sent their way). THANK YOU ALL FOR CONTRIBUTING TO TUTORING SERVICES’ WORK IN SUPPORTING OUR STUDENTS!

The Tutoring Services temporary office in 1103 will remain open through most of the break from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday-Thursday, and from 9 a.m. – noon on Friday (during summer hours) and 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. (when we return to normal hours). Please let students know that we are available to accept applications and answer questions. We are excited to be back in the Library for fall quarter, and we will update you on hours and locations for all of our fall services closer to the start of that quarter.
