Types of Tutoring

When you come to the SCAA, you will encounter a talented and capable staff of tutors and reception desk assistants who will do their best to help you succeed. The tutor's primary job is to help you discover and develop strategies that will empower your own learning and enhance those skills you already possess. A SCAA tutor's role is not to edit or proofread your papers, or do your math homework while you sit by and observe. Rather than just correcting your errors, the tutors will work together with you. A tutor's goal is to help you become a self-empowered, independent, and successful student, a better editor, and a more competent analyzer of math problems.

Supplemental Instruction (SI)

SI Leaders support historically-difficult classes on campus. They sit back through the class alongside students and hold weekly group study sessions, which generally consist of interactive discussions and collaborative practice activities.
