The SEEK Learning Resource Center offers tutoring and academic support in most academic subjects. SEEK students can take advantage of a individual one-on-one tutoring, small group tutoring, specialized academic workshops and supplemental instruction. We also offer Criticak Thinking workshops fro our freshman students.
All tutoring sessions are held in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Tutoring is offered on an hourly basis for most coursework. Appointments can be scheduled or made on a walk-in basis. We recommend making appointments in advance because tutor schedules can fill up very quickly.
Should we not have a tutor available for the course in which you need help, the SEEK Learning Resource Center works closely with other academic support offices on campus, such as ACE (Old Gym 205), The Math Lab (Gillet Hall 222) and the Science Learning Center (Gillet Hall 133) to get you the help you need.
The SEEK Learning Resource Center conducts a variey of workshops including Critical Thinking (CT) and Jumpstart workshops. CT workshops focus on developing the reading and annotating skills of all SEEK freshman students enabling them to become better critical thinkers in college and beyond. Jumpstart workshops are open to all SEEK students enrolled in select target math and science courses. The objective of a particular Jumpstart workshop is to introduce participating students to course material before the course begins by reviewing the first three to four chapters of the required course textbook.
SI (Supplemental Instruction)
Supplemental Instruction is a 50 minute review session for students enrolled in historically difficult courses. SI sessions are led by former or current students who have been successful in these courses. SI is mandatory for all SEEK freshmen because it has been shown to improve student learning and performance. Students themselves report that SI not only helps them do better in their courses, but it is a great way for them to network with their peers and receive mentoring from high-achieving students.
