  • In-person tutoring  Students are welcome to stop by the MSW in Ladd to meet with available tutors to review course material as needed or to use the computer resources. Note: seating is limited in accordance with public health precautions and social distancing.  If no seats are available then students will be asked to schedule an appointment for either in-person or zoom tutoring for a later time.
  • Attached Tutors for Select Classes  Attached tutors are assigned to each section of the Math/Stats/DCS courses which usually have a high demand for tutoring. Attached tutors (usually) attend class once per week, alongside enrolled students. In addition, attached tutors hold evening help sessions 1-2 times per week in academic classrooms across campus. Students may schedule appointments, individually or with a group of friends, to meet with the attached tutor outside of class. Details on how to make an appointment are provided in class. Students in courses with an attached tutor are welcome to utilize all services of the MSW and are not limited to meeting with their attached tutor.
