The S.E.E.K. Tutoring & Supplemental Instruction Program not only offers FREE individual and group tutoring sessions, but a variety of Workshops and Supplemental Instruction as well.
All tutoring sessions are held in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Tutoring is offered on an hourly basis for most coursework, as well as for ACT Reading, Writing, Math and CPE Test preparation. In the S.E.E.K. Tutoring office, you will find wall sheets which display our current tutor information & schedules. 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 S.E.E.K. Tutoring office works closely with other tutoring outlets on campus, such as ACE (Old Gym 215), The Math Lab (Gillet Hall 222) and the Science Learning Center (Gillet Hall 133) to get you the help you need.
S.E.E.K. conducts ACT Test Preparation Workshops throughout the year for students who have not yet passed the ACT Tests. The workshops focus on strategies for mastering the test and are usually held 2 to 3 times a week with each session running 2 to 3 hours in length. By Testing Center policy, all students needing to re-test are required to complete at least 20 hours of workshop instruction or tutoring prior to testing. Students must sign up IN PERSON in OG212.
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 S.E.E.K. 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 make friends and receive mentoring from high-achieving students.
Computers & Electronic Resources
S.E.E.K. has a Computer Lab exclusively for SEEK students located in OG218. In addition we have 20 laptop computers that can be loaned out for 2 hour periods with a validated ID. We also have 10 licenses for the computer online tutorial PLATO which allows you to practice and assess your skills independently and from home. PLATO covers the areas of Math, Reading, Writing, Science and Life-skills. Tutors are on hand to teach you how to use PLATO.
