Tutoring Program

The Workshops for Excellence Tutoring Program at the Drop-In Center offers up to six separate Workshops each semester for Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics freshman- and sophomore- level courses. The Workshops meet for two hours twice a week in each subject area and are at no cost to the student.  The Workshops are led by some of Auburn's best Ph.D. graduate-teaching assistants in the departments of Biological SciencesChemistryMathematics and Physics. Minority students who attend these Workshops perform significantly better than those who opt not to participate, as proven by their test scores and grade-point averages. During the Workshop sessions, you will work in small groups under the guidance of a Graduate Teaching Assistant and an undergraduate mentor.

Tutoring is provided in the Drop-In Center Workrooms on Monday-Thursday, 1 pm-5pm in Room 226 in the Science Center Classrooms Building. Student tutors provide help in the Biology (1020, 1030, 2500), Chemistry (1010, 1020, 1030, 1040, 1110, 1120, 2030, 2070, 2080), Mathematics (1120, 1150, 1610, 1620, 2630, 2650, 2660), and Physics (1500, 1510, 1600, 1610, 2100, 2200). There is no charge for tutoring.

Tutoring Program Goals

  • To provide tutoring assistance to students currently enrolled in one of the Science and Mathematics disciplines.
  • To keep track of the students’ progress to ensure that the tutoring sessions are effective.
  • To keep a record of each student tutored and the subject area(s) tutored to compile necessary data for analysis.

How to Identify and Select a Tutor

In the office of 225 SCC, there is a list of tutors for specific courses and the times they are scheduled to tutor those subjects. Match a tutor for a course you are taking with your available hours and report to SCC 226 at those hours. There is no limit to the number of hours you can be tutored, as long as a tutor is available.
