Tutoring Services is offering a limited number of students the special opportunity to be matched with a tutor, which allows students to have on-going appointments every week—up to 2 one hour appointments.

Priority is given to:

  • Students in math classes (thanks to special funding from the Minnesota State System Office)
  • Students who are repeating a course
  • Students on academic warning or probation
  • Students who need to raise their GPA to be accepted to their major
  • Students who are referred by faculty or staff member due to special circumstances

Being matched with a tutor means you conveniently have the appointments set on your schedule every week. Additional advantages are that you would get 1-on-1 attention and work with the same tutor every time. Of course, you could also continue to use drop-in tutoring and/or attend Supplement to Instruction (s2i) sessions.

If you are interested, please fill out this form. Students who receive a match must commit to not missing more than two appointments or they may lose their spot in the match program.
