Quantitative Skills Initiative (QSI) Tutoring

As a part of a new Quantitative Skills Initiative, the Student Success Center now offers individualized, appointment-based tutoring for math. Current Seaver College students enrolled in math through Calculus I are now able to make an appointment for personalized math support. This service is offered at no cost to students. The Quantitative Skills Initiative is made possible through a generous grant from the Hearst Foundation. Students can make an appointment for online tutoring using the Navigate app, or the Navigate Appointment Scheduler.

Each student may schedule a maximum of two hours of individual tutoring per week (four 30-minute sessions), and may book only two weeks in advance. Note, students who cancel an appointment and reach a total of three cancellations will be unable to book an appointment for a seven-day period.  A cancellation encompasses those that cancel less than six hours before the appointment, or if a student is no show to the tutoring session. If cancellations continue after the seven-day period, then students may be prevented from making future QSI tutoring appointments for the remainder of the semester.
