Student Success Tutoring

The Student Success Tutoring Program provides support for students to master course content and ultimately attain their academic goals.  The major objective is to EMPOWER students to become creative, independent learners and problem solvers capable of processing and handling volumes of information. 

Student Success Tutoring Program
  • One-on-one tutoring in social sciences courses and in the STEM areas when students need individualized assistance 
  • Specialized academic coaching
  • Generic study skills workshops
  • Student Success Seminars
  • Support for students preparing to take tests for graduate and professional school
  • Administration and interpretation of multiple student assessments (i.e., Myers Briggs and Strong Interest Inventory, ETS profile, and Major Field Tests)

Academic Coaching

The academic coach meets individually with students who have encountered academic challenges that have caused her to be on academic warning or probation.  The academic coach will assist  the student in developing an Academic Success Plan to include specific goals and strategies for meeting her academic goals. Some of the strategies include regular meetings with the academic coach, meetings with peer tutors, managing time wisely, and using effective study strategies.

Peer Tutors

Peer tutoring is available by appointment or on a drop-in basis throughout the academic year.  Our peer tutors complete a rigorous training program.  Students may receive assistance in study techniques, specified content areas, textbook reading skills, note-taking, test-wise strategies, problem solving and communication skills.  Our peer tutors are positive, enthusiastic and sincere about helping their Spelman sisters.  Remember, peer tutors are students like you!  They understand your challenges and they are eager to help you learn.

Remember: Tutors cannot take the place of course instruction. Please see your instructor as a first step toward understanding the material.
