The CTLR has two programs that provide intensive course-based support using peer tutors. The Quantitative Skills Support and the Writing Center hire, train, and mentor peer tutors who work with faculty across the disciplines and in writing intensive courses. Each program is unique in its approach to embedded tutoring models so please read the information below carefully. 

Quantitative Skills Support Course-Based Tutoring Program

Course-based STEM and Social Science subject tutors are available by request. Tutors are trained and supervised by the CTLR. Depending on an individual department’s needs, the CTLR will also pay some or all of the requested tutor’s hours. 

Requests should be submitted prior to the semester start, or as early as possible in the semester to allow for adequate tutor recruitment, training and placement.

Additional information can be found on the STEM Tutoring page.

To request or recommend a tutor submit the faculty request form. If you have questions, contact Frank Ruzicka, Director of Quantitative support. 

Writing Center Course-Based Tutoring Program

Course-based writing tutors work with students one-on-one on the writing process, revision, project planning, idea development, etc. They can also provide in-class workshops related to time management, revision, research integration, etc. Typically connected with writing-intensive courses, writing tutors are also available for courses outside the FYS/CW/WRPR programs. 

An announcement is sent to faculty prior to the start of the semester (in June for fall semester and in December for spring semester) to request a tutor.

Additional details about course-based tutors and Writing Center faculty support can be found on the Writing Center course-based tutoring page. Contact Genie Giaimo, Assistant Professor of Writing and Rhetoric and Director of the Writing Center with questions.
