TUTORING FALL 2021
Tutoring will be in-person, in coordination with CDC and King's College guidelines. A student may request a virtual session which will use one of several video meeting platforms ( Zoom, Microsoft Teams, GoBoard, Facetime, etc.) As always, we suggest contacting an instructor as the first step in support.

Do You Need An Academic Boost?
The King's College Tutoring Program creates an environment for success, providing student-to-student assistance through scheduled afternoon and evening tutoring. Students build independence and effective learning habits through active-learning, increased confidence and improved study habits. Tutoring provides course-content assistance to students, free of charge, in most disciplines.
Tutors are selected through an interview process and the recommendation from their instructors or the tutorial coordinator. Qualified tutors must receive at least a grade of B+ or above in the courses being tutored or demonstrate equivalent experience. Tutors gain professional development through training and actual work experience. The King's College Tutoring Program is certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). Tutors, who meet specific requirements, may receive recognition as a certified tutor through CRLA. King's College has been certified at Levels I and II.
- Please utilize the course instructor as your primary resource before scheduling a tutoring session.
- Please attempt your assignment prior to attending tutoring.
- Please come to the session with questions prepared; remember to bring your class notes, textbook, and other materials.
- Your tutor is there to guide you, not to complete your assignments.
- You may stay as long as you need or until the session is over.
- If you are not signed up, you will not be admitted to the tutoring session.
Located in Mulligan Building (Across from the Post Office), The Writing Lab provides services to students seeking to improve their writing in any course. The Writing Center will be operating in person during the FALL 2021 semester.

A good tutor must be able to teach another student how to study the course material and to review specific course content.
Key Attributes of a King's College Tutor:

Interpersonal Skills: You must demonstrate effective skills in working collaboratively with peers and teaching with compassion. You must be good problem solvers.
