The tutoring program is sponsored by the Success Center and is free to University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis students. The goal of the program is to provide additional academic support to students in specific classes. The tutoring program is designed to improve the academic standing and successful retention of students. You will find all information related to the tutoring program including group tutoring dates and locations on the Success through tutoring site located on Moodle.
This year, the University will offer three forms of tutoring support. Students may use tutoring services in any combination.
Walk-in/Group Tutoring Sessions
Students who are registered for the class can attend any group session offered. These sessions are usually held for one-two hours, once a week.
Private Tutoring Sessions
Private tutoring sessions consist of one tutor and one tutee. The sessions usually last for one hour. The time, day and place are agreed upon by the participants.
Small Group Tutoring
Students enrolled in core courses will have the opportunity to participate in a small group tutoring session. Students will receive a link to enroll in a small group online. The group members will meet weekly with a tutor for one hour to discuss and review course information. The small group sessions will not exceed seven students per group.
Expectations of Students Being Tutored
Tutoring is most beneficial when you spend time preparing for your session. Review your notes, text and other class materials provided by your professor, and come prepared with a list of topics with which you are struggling. Please be considerate of your tutor's time by showing up on time for your session. If you are unable to make it, notify the tutor as soon as possible.
Required Tutoring Check-In Form
In order to assess and enhance the tutoring program, it is important that we track the number of tutoring hours provided to our students. Please fill out the required tutoring check-in form at the beginning of each tutoring session.
