Faculty Resources

  • Electronic Tutoring Referral

    You no longer need to sign referrals for individual students; you can refer all of the students in your classes simply by selecting the convenient radio button located in Intranet (Rosters/SOCRATES) on the page listing all of your classes.

  • Class Orientations and Presentations

    We will conduct a short orientation about the Learning Skills and Tutoring Center services for each of your classes.  In addition to the orientation, on request, we will present brief study strategy mini-workshop that will enable your students to learn more effectively while in or out of the classroom.

  • Beacon PAL Group Tutoring

    A Beacon PAL is a trained peer tutor who meets with you, the instructor, and then facilitates group study sessions with students in your class, focusing on the content areas you want covered.

     

  • Tutor Training Courses

    We offer tutor training courses that focus on the role of a peer tutor and methods of effective individual and group tutoring. Training is required of all tutors in the Learning Resource Center and for Beacon PAL tutors.
