Recognizing the value of group study and in response to student need, the Learning Center is developing a service for classes where it is evident that several students would benefit from peer tutoring specific to that class. While drop-in tutoring would still be recommended, a Guided Study Session tutor would facilitate 3-5 study sessions in consultation with the class instructor. Most likely these study sessions would be planned around scheduled exams. In essence, these Guided Study Sessions more closely resemble an alternate configuration of drop-in tutoring as opposed to courses sponsoring Supplemental Instruction (SI).
