Many students find college gets harder as the years go on. There will be a point at which students might be struggling in a course and need help.
However, there is no need to worry. Shippensburg University offers tutoring sessions to all students in Mowrey Hall.
The Learning Center hires trained tutors in a wide variety of subjects. Tutors are hired just like other on-campus jobs, such as cashiers and lab attendents through the Career and Community Engagement Center.
If students cannot find a tutor in their needed subject, they should contact Zach Grabosky, tutor coordinator of the Learning Center.
Students interested in being a tutor can be either undergraduate or graduate students and need a 3.0 GPA or higher.
Those who tutor in the Learning Center focus on helping students find a way to effectively understand the material they are studying.
Students who wish to attend tutoring sessions should come prepared. Students are asked to read material ahead of time. They are also asked to try completing assignments before seeking out the tutoring center.
Students should utilize their time wisely when it comes to tutoring. The tutoring sessions can only be used twice a week per subject for a student. Sessions for the same subject may not happen simultaneously.
To schedule an appointment, students should visit the Student Success Collaborative (SSC) found through each students Ship Portal under the My Student Resources section.
If a student has trouble scheduling an appointment, he or she should call the center at (717) 477-1420 or visit the center reception right inside the doors of Mowrey Hall.
