Spring 2016 Tutoring Hours

Tutoring is done by students who have successfully completed Fundamentals of Speech Communication, Critical Thinking and Small Groups, Introduction to Argumentation, or Critical Listening and Thinking. Tutors work one-on-one with students from those classes who want help learning the concepts, studying for exams, or preparing speaking assignments. Tutoring not only helps you learn to work individually with people to improve their performances, but also demonstrates your willingness to be of service to others.

For questions about the tutoring program, please contact the tutor adviser, Romi Hitchcock-Tinseth.
