Tutoring services ongoing through the end of the semester

The Franzen Center is continuing to offer tutoring assistance to students through the rest of the semester.

For writing and presentation tutoring, students can submit their papers and videos on the portal under the Franzen Center tab for them to be reviewed by tutors. Tutors will make suggestions on the paper or give feedback in an email. Tutors will fill out contact entry forms for every paper/video just like they did on campus.

This is still quite popular with students — 61 submissions were received between March 30 and mid-April.

There are no set times that writing tutors are available, but they are trying to give feedback within 24 hours.

Contracted tutors are holding sessions with students two to three times a week using Zoom. Students still can request a tutor on the portal: go to the Franzen Center tab, then select “Request a Tutor.”

Quantitative drop-in tutoring also is still available. Students must email the tutor during the tutoring hours, then the tutor will invite them to a Zoom meeting. Quantitative tutors can help with math, physics, chemistry, biology, economics, psychology and CTL 120. The new hours for drop-in tutoring are:

  • Sunday, 6-8 p.m.: Maddie King ’21
  • Monday, 4-6 p.m.: Brianna Bembenek ’22
  • Tuesday, 4-6 p.m.: Adam Wronski ’20
  • Wednesday, 4-6 p.m.: Maeve Kim ’21
  • Thursday, 6-8 p.m.: Mohammad Navid Nafisi Bahabadi ’22

Peer-Led Undergraduate Study (PLUS) sessions are being held at the same times during the week that they did while on campus: BIO 312, Mondays, 2-3:30 p.m.; BIO 121 Tuesdays, 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.; and PSC 110, Thursdays, 10:30 a.m. to noon.

The Franzen Center also has Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. The pages are updated a few times per week, and they feature a tutor of the week to help keep students and tutors active on social media.
