The Burton Center houses our peer tutoring services. Tutoring is available in nearly every discipline (per your request) six days a week. Our hours are from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. Monday – Thursday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Friday and 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. on Sunday. Tutoring is offered on a first come-first served basis and is delivered by highly trained peer tutors who complete a 3-hour credit course, Peer Tutor Seminar, prior to their employment in the Burton Center. The Burton Center offers mid-term and final exam review sessions, writing workshops, academic coaching, learning style assessment, group study sessions, and development of academic action plans all to help you to enhance your academic achievement.
Any student who would like to apply to be a peer tutor/peer coach in the Burton Center for Student Success must meet the following criteria:
When you come to the Burton Center for the first time to seek tutoring in any subject, you can expect to complete a Learning Style Assessment before your tutoring session begins. Our tutors are trained to read the results of your assessment and then apply their understanding of your learning style to each tutoring session. For instance, if you are predominantly a vision learner, our tutors are equipped to use visual examples and tools to assist you as you learn. Tutors will also assist you in applying your learning style to your own methods of studying and academic success.
In order to expedite this process you may follow this link to an on-line assessment, complete the assessment, print the results and bring them with you to your first visit to the Burton Center. We will keep your results on file and add them to your profile on the Burton Center Tracking System. Index of Learning Styles Questionnaire
