Tutoring Resources for all Students

    Group Tutoring

    Group tutoring is available for various lower-level and certain upper-division undergraduate courses. Group tutoring consists of small study groups (typically 2-8 students) facilitated by a trained and experienced peer tutor. Sessions are scheduled at the mutual convenience of both the students and the tutor for as many as 3 hours per week. Group tutoring is provided free of charge and is one of the best resources available to help you succeed in your courses.

    Note: As of April 8, 2019 the Group Tutoring Department is no longer accepting tutor requests for the spring 2019 semester. We urge you to seek out support by attending your professor’s office hours and/or stopping by the Academic Support Lab in Sisson Hall 106 for information on study skills and test taking strategies.

    Guidelines

    1. We are here to help you succeed in your LOWER DIVISION math class(es).
    2. In order to help you in your quest to learn mathematics, please do not ask us to do your homework problems and/or test/exam corrections.
    3. We will be happy to help you understand and/or solve similar problems. At times, it may be necessary for us to refer to your textbook. This helps to refresh our memories (remember we are also students) and it enables us to show you how to find necessary information in your book. This is a crucial skill for success in mathematics!
    4. Please realize that the math lab is open for all SUNY Potsdam students on a walk-in basis, thus it may or may not be full when you arrive for help. In light of this, plan accordingly and please do not wait until the last possible minute to get help.
    5. If you have any suggestions/concerns please contact Dr. Person at 267-2068, in her office MacVicar 218, or by email: personlj@potsdam.edu.
