Please encourage your students who are taking Summer classes at the College to take advantage of available tutoring at the CSL during Summer I and Summer II. We are offering tutoring in Spanish and French, most Math classes, and paper consultation in all writing-based classes. Students who are interested in accessing a tutor should come to the front desk at the CSL during the business day (8:30 am-5:00 pm, M-F). The receptionist will give the student the tutor’s contact information, and it is up to the student to contact the tutor.
Please remind your students that, as with so many things in life, instant gratification is often not possible, and timing is everything. In other words, connect with the tutor early, well in advance of the first test, and often, as the tutor may be doing research, working another job, taking classes, etc., and may not respond immediately.
CSL tutoring is available at no extra cost to students. However, if a student is seeking a tutor in a subject area that we do not cover, or for some other reason would like a ‘private’ tutor, we are affiliated with Tutor Matching Service http://csl.cofc.edu/labs/private-tutoring/index.php , which manages a broad range of local and online tutors, many of whom are College of Charleston students. This is an easy way for students to quickly find tutors, their subject areas, price ranges, and availability.
Finally, students who are struggling with study strategies and effective techniques for one or more of their classes are welcome to make a Study Strategies appointment with one of our professional staff by contacting the front desk at the CSL.
