|Tutoring has been known to not only increase student understanding of a subject, but it also improves grade point averages.|
Students having trouble with the complexities of mathematics? Do they need help with coursework in business, engineering or science? Students can make an appointment with a tutor at Cal Poly Pomona' s Learning Resource Center (LRC) in Learning Module 13C and begin increasing their word power. Thanks to an increased allocation from Associated Students Inc. for the 2006-07 fiscal year, students now benefit from free tutoring.
“Just last quarter, students paid $4 an hour for tutoring services,” says LRC administrative coordinator Melissa Robinson. “Now, with ASI's support, they can take advantage of our free tutoring pilot program.”
From summer quarter 2006 through spring quarter 2007, free tutoring is available to Cal Poly Pomona students in nearly all academic subjects. Students simply go to the LRC and make an appointment. Most tutoring is done on a one-to-one basis, but group sessions can be arranged by request.
“We hope that free tutoring will increase student awareness of this great opportunity to supplement classroom activity and improve grade point averages,” says LRC database coordinator Mark Greenwood. “Most of our students say that they receive higher grades as a result of tutoring.”
ASI is looking to improve student retention and increase student success by providing free access to an important service. Tutoring is known to promote academic confidence, reinforce strong study skills, and provide motivation to conquer difficult subjects. For more information, call (909) 869-3502.
