Check out the Learning Center for Online Tutoring!

For over 40 years, the Learning Center and Tutoring Services at Fredonia has been used by a large number of students. The Learning Center has a wide variety of student tutors, offering assistance in 18 disciplines including Psychology. The Psychology tutors can provide help for many courses in the department, especially Statistics (PSY 200) and Research Methods (PSY 315). For the Fall 2020 semester, Tutoring Services is online via Zoom. Zoom allows students to utilize one-on-one Breakout Rooms, ensuring that students will still have a confidential tutoring session! This program has been very successful, and students who utilize Tutoring Services consistently report feeling more confident and indicate that they have learned new strategies or skills and have a better understanding of course material after working with a tutor. Here is the link to the tutoring schedule, and the Zoom link for tutoring sessions: academics/tutoring-services/ drop-tutoring-schedule
