Drop-in Tutoring

Drop-in Tutoring & Virtual Study Hall

 

What is Drop-in Tutoring?

Sign up for drop-in tutoring with student lead tutors on TutorTrac on a space available basis. Appointments can be reserved up to two weeks in advance and can be scheduled 24 hours in advance if the time slot is open. Students may sign up for same day appointments by contacting the virtual front desk depending on availability.

 

What is Virtual Study Hall?

Virtual study hall is an online space hosted by one of our four student lead tutors (in Science, Math, Nursing, and Languages) where students can log on to study virtually with their peers. If students are enrolled in a course we offer tutoring for and have a question while in the study hall, they can ask the lead tutor hosting. In a virtual study hall, we play productive study music and provide space for students to gather as a community to study together, similar as to what students often did while physically on campus. Get your friends and classmates to log in as well, and study while seeing friendly faces.

Sal

Major: Applied Mathematics

Math Subject Specialist

My name is Salvatore Calatola-Young, but you can call me Sal. I’m the math subject specialist working at LAP, so you will likely see me around sometime if you’re using LAP services. I’m a junior applied mathematics major and a big math nerd in general. Outside of math and LAP, I’m a Bass section leader for choir and a mediocre Smash Ultimate player. Come find me in the cubicles in the LAP office in the second floor of the library across from the math lab if you want to start tutoring sessions or would like some drop in tutoring!

Being a positive resource for any nursing students who have any questions or concerns is one of my main priorities this year, so feel free to reach out to me at any time. I’m very excited for this year!

Major: Communications Minor: French

Language Subject Specialist

My name is Anna and I am this years language subject specialist. I am a fourth-year Communications major specializing in journalism with a French minor. I was abroad my sophomore year in France and Senegal, West Africa. I tutor all levels of French and enjoy working on grammar concepts, as well as having conversation in French too. I am here to help you work on your French skills, talk about culture and help you become more confident in learning another language. Besides speaking French, I also enjoy baking, hiking and writing blog posts in my free time

It was helpful having a tutor that could answer any questions I had on the course material. It helped to review difficult topics from class and my tutor showed me the easiest way to understand the topics.
