Important Information about Tutoring

Who can use tutoring?

You can! Tutoring is available to all undergraduate and graduate students at Suffolk.

Why should I meet with a tutor?

Regular appointments with a tutor may boost your semester and cumulative GPAs, help you understand course content, strengthen study skills, increase your awareness of other campus resources, help you create specific action plan to achieve academic goals and develop an effective time management system.

How often would I meet with my tutor?

This will be determined by you and your tutor upon your first meeting. A weekly meeting is often recommended, although some students prefer to schedule meetings twice a week.

What should I bring to my tutoring appointment?

Please bring your syllabus, course materials and textbook together with specific questions to get the very best out of your tutoring experience.

Who are the peer tutors?

Tutors are students just like you who have earned an "A" in the class for which they tutor. Many of our tutors have been recommended by the faculty for this role and all of them have sought this role because they enjoy helping others and collaborating with their peers.

If a tutor is not available for a specific course or content area, students may work with an academic coach. Coaching appointments are made by contacting the CLAS. Also, it is highly recommended that students reach out to their professors if the CLAS cannot provide content specific support.
