Embedded Tutoring

What is Embedded Tutoring?

Embedded Tutors empowers individuals to become independent learners and critical thinkers. Tutors provide a supportive environment for students to understand new or challenging material through the use of innovative learning and study strategies.

The Student Success Center (SSC)'s Embedded Tutor Program places a tutor in the classroom, working closely with the instructor for the duration of the course. The embedded tutor works in the class as:

  • a peer tutor
  • a mentor
  • a model for successful academic strategies and habits

An embedded tutor may offer an experienced student voice to class discussions, lead small break-out sessions, or provide one-on-one mini-tutorials. Embedded tutors can offer in-class and out of class tutoring, help foster connection for the students with college academic support services, and address essential academic skills necessary to succeed in college level coursework. 

All services are free to enrolled students.
