The Tutoring Center exists to promote academic learning (for students of all skill levels) by assisting them in difficult classes, reinforcing effective study skills, and teaching them to direct their own learning. Additionally, the center reinforces the Emmaus community by encouraging students to communicate clearly (both with peers and with professors), to collaborate effectively on important projects, and to distinguish between ethical and unethical academic assistance.
Currently, the Tutoring Center offers one-on-one sessions for students to get help on their projects or classes; sessions may be scheduled on a one-time basis or regularly. The center also offers materials on effective study skills and information on how to avoid plagiarism.
Guidelines for Use
We're excited to have you at the Academic Support Center! You will get the most out of our services if you follow these three guidelines:
- Please be on time for your appointment if you choose to schedule one. If you cannot make it, please cancel your appointment as soon as you can.
- Please bring your class materials to each session. At the very least, you should have your textbook, scratch paper, all work you've done so far, and any specific questions you have.
- Please come ready to learn. Tutors are happy to lend a hand with difficult classes, but they will not proofread your paper or check your math homework for you.
