Students will be able to drop in for in-person tutoring. Students are limited to 3 sessions (total of 3 hours) of tutoring services per week and must be currently enrolled in the courses for which they are receiving tutoring. Students who have a conflict with in-person hours should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to see if alternate scheduling options are available.
We are also offering one-on-one workshops. Current workshop topics are: Time Management, Study Skills, Note Taking, Talking with Professors, Finals Preparation, Successful Online Learning, and Easing Test Anxiety. Workshop appointments may be requested here.
Tutoring sessions may consist of group sessions led by a peer tutor. This is especially the case for courses that lend themselves to more group academic assistance, such as math, accounting, economics, and physical science courses. Tutors are available in the majority of academic disciplines and employ various academic strategies to help address individual student needs.
The Tutoring Center at Canisius College offers a comprehensive level of tutorial services to best support students in successfully completing their academic careers while assisting them in developing the skills to become successful lifelong learners. It provides a dedicated staff of peer tutors ready to assist students in their academic pursuits. In accordance with the Canisius College mission, “we foster in our students a commitment to excellence”.
