In addition to subject tutoring, students can book an appointment with a tutor who specializes in time management and success strategies. You will find available appointments listed on our schedule under "College 101: Success Strategies" and "College 101: Time Management". These tutors are specially trained in these topics to assist you through your college journey.
Our Tutoring Philosophy
The Center for Academic Excellence tutoring staff strongly believes in a growth mindset, which emphasizes that anyone can learn anything with hard work and commitment to learning. Thus, we employ a collaborative tutoring model in which the client is central to the learning process. This is to say that CAE subject tutors don't simply provide answers to challenging assignments and problems; instead, our subject tutors seek to help clients discover the answers themselves by working through examples using variety of teaching techniques. We hope that students who visit our subject tutoring facilities will leave with a greater breath of knowledge, able to approach their coursework more confidently. Therefore, we hope that clients will view our subject tutoring services not as a means of getting answers and acing a single assignment but instead as a way to improve over time and gain skills for the future.
How it Works
Once you’ve made an appointment, please bring your course materials, assignment, textbook, and questions. Your subject tutor will work with you one-on-one to review concepts, work through examples, clarify your understanding, and answer your questions.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
