If you are struggling with a particular class, it may be because of weak study skills. At the Center for Academic Achievement, we offer assistance on a wide array of issues including time management strategies, college-level reading, note taking, organization, test preparation, and ways to prevent test anxiety.
We'll help you build strong study skills first and then, if needed, recommend a subject-based tutor.
Make an appointment to discuss your specific needs. This initial meeting should only take 15-20 minutes, but we will speak with you as long as necessary to determine how we can best help you succeed.
Sunday: 6-10 pm
Monday - Thursday: 1-4 and 6-10 pm
Friday: 1-3 pm
No appointments necessary. Room 249, Fisher Hall
The Math Center offers tutoring help for Pre-calculus, Statistics, Calculus, and Linear Algebra. Certain peer tutors, who are math majors or minors, are also qualified to tutor other subjects such as advanced math courses, accounting, computer courses, and physics.
Feel free to drop in without an appointment. The frequency of tutoring sessions varies for each student, depending on the level of difficulty of a class or assignment. Some students come on a regular basis. They do their homework on their own, but there is help available if they have a question. Others come when they have a particularly difficult problem or assignment. Some students visit only before a test for a quick review.
Our goal is to enable you to work independently and to enhance the material that is presented by your professor.
In addition to traditional math courses, the Math Center currently offers tutoring in Statistics for Behavioral Science twice each week. Please call for times. Students may receive assistance with Business Statistics at a satellite location in Apfelbaum Hall.
Sunday: 6 - 10 pm
Monday - Thursday: 12:30 - 5 pm and 6 - 10 pm
Friday: 12:30 - 5 pm
Call 570-372-4342 or stop by Room 202 Fisher Hall.
At the Writing Center, you can get help improving your critical thinking strategies and writing techniques for most courses, regardless of the subject.
Peer tutors, who are majors and minors in a variety of subjects, will help you brainstorm ideas or form a thesis, make sense of an assignment, learn how to ask effective questions, and offer guidance in areas such as formatting and creating citations. We can also assist you with personal and professional writing projects.
Appointments are highly recommended. Walk-ins must wait until a tutor is available.
Allow at least a half hour for help with shorter essays, assignments or questions. For longer papers and a more thorough discussion, please schedule a one-hour appointment several days before the paper is due.
Come to the Center for Academic Achievement for help with Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish language courses.
Our tutors are students with a language major or minor who have spent at least a semester in a country in which the studied language is predominant. We also hire native speakers who are studying at Susquehanna.
Language tutors help students improve skills by identifying strengths and weaknesses, explaining and demonstrating strategies, and by asking questions that engage students. They will help with assignments, but will not do the work for you. Instead they will collaborate with you so you can be successful on your own.
Our goal is to help students gain confidence in the process of learning a language, learn to summarize and make sense of assignments, improve critical thinking skills, and learn how to ask effective questions.
For one-on-one language tutoring, contact the tutor directly. French drop-in tutoring is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Walk-ins also are welcome for the weekly review sessions for SPAN-103.
Please visit mySU for a list of tutors.
We provide tutoring support for students enrolled in many intro-level science courses and several courses in the Sigmund Weis School of Business.
