Learning Assistance Programs provides peer tutoring in a variety of subject areas including math, science, nursing, and foreign languages. Both the tutor and student benefit from this meaningful relationship. LAP offers two forms of tutoring: weekly tutoring and drop-in tutoring.
Weekly tutoring offers students the opportunity to meet with a trained peer tutor for an hour each week for the duration of the quarter. Students need to complete a Tutoring Needs Assessment (TNA) before accessing weekly tutoring.
Drop-in tutoring with peer subject specialists is available on a space-available basis. These single-case, 30-minute appointments are found and booked through Tutortrac.
Note: Because most humanities classes (History, English, Philosophy, Theology, etc) differ greatly in content and instructor style we do not offer tutoring in those subjects. However, during an Individual Consultation Appointment (ICA) we can help you design a study approach for these courses too. For other classes we may not tutor, we can often point students to other campus resources they may not be aware of.
Additionally, tutoring for Accounting, Economics and Business Communication is being provided by the Albers School of Business & Economics. Students needing tutoring in Economics should refer to the Economics Tutoring Lab or contact Armen Papyan email@example.com; for Business Communication, Jani Medeiros firstname.lastname@example.org; and for Accounting, refer to the Accounting Tutoring Lab webpage.
I really like being able to learn the material from someone that isn't my teacher. It helps reinforce the material and my tutor is really good at explaining new or confusing concepts.SeattleU student
