Tutors are available in most academic courses for you and other program students. The Educational Development Program's membership in the College Tutoring Services (CTS) has been especially valuable to program students who need to establish a strategy for success in certain courses. It is also used to help our honor students in maintaining competitive grade point averages. Some program students are encouraged to become tutors. Tutoring is of no cost, all that is required is cooperation and motivation. This tutoring is for students who desire tutoring on a regular basis, with a minimum of one hour per week. Students who seek occasional help with tutoring should go to the Leaning Center, located on the 4th floor of Reed Library.
To obtain a tutor, students need to fill out the tutee application from the EDP office within the first two weeks of classes or as soon as they feel they need help. This form includes the student's class, professor, textbook, and time period available for tutoring. Times for the tutoring sessions are set up between the tutor and tutee. If the student cannot attend a tutoring session, he/she should notify the tutor and the Learning Center as soon as possible. To terminate the tutoring service, students must first discuss the possibility with their EDP counselor and tutor.

The College Tutoring Services (CTS) office, together with the Learning Center, the Full Opportunity Program, Disability Support Services for Students and the Educational Development Program, hires students to join its tutoring staff for every March. All applications must be submitted to the Learning Center on the fourth floor of Reed Library. CTS tutors are paid an hourly wage to work a scheduled number of hours, from two to six hours per week, for drop-in students at the Learning Center or in one-on-one hourly sessions with specific students assigned by the program.
