Tutoring

The Seaver Student Success Center is a nationally recognized tutor training program that meets the highest professional standards of skill and training for tutors in postsecondary educational institutions. We coordinate tutoring across many lower-division general education courses as well in high-demand subject areas such as mathematics, chemistry, and foreign languages. All tutoring at the Student Success Center is offered at no cost to students. 

With the belief that the student is the center of the academic enterprise, we operate our peer-tutoring network with the mindset that students working with students promotes academic success. Our peer-tutoring program operates on a drop-in basis, first-come, first-served basis. Students do not need to make an appointment to attend.
