Explore the tutoring centers available at Ursuline to help students succeed
Professional tutors and well-trained and faculty-recommended peer tutors offer free tutoring. Students can schedule appointments one week at a time when they need it rather than committing to a semester-long tutoring session.
Subjects include accounting, biology, business, chemistry, computers, English, logic, math, music, nursing, psychology, physics, college writing, study skills, and more.
While tutoring focuses on helping students understand general course content, ACSS promotes active engagement and participation among students. By working together in a group setting, students can ask questions, share their insights, and collaborate on problem-solving. This active involvement enhances their understanding of the subject and fosters critical thinking skills.
Group tutoring provides a supportive and encouraging environment for students. They can learn from their peers, exchange ideas, and receive feedback from multiple perspectives.
Students engage in collaborative sessions with writing academic coaches to enhance their capacity to effectively express their thoughts through written communication across various subjects and writing styles. Instead of simply submitting their papers for proofreading, students actively participate in refining their writing skills and gaining insights from their errors, working alongside the writing academic coaches.
