Individual and Small Group Sessions with Peer Content Tutors

If you are having difficulty with a particular course such as World History, Introduction to Psychology, Financial Accounting, or any course besides those offered in Composition, English, or Math through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, an individual or small-group hour-long tutoring session with one of our Peer Tutors may be just what you need. (For assistance with papers, contact the Student Success Center Writing Lab at 609-895-5640 and for CLAES math, contact the Math Skills Lab at 609-896-5305.)

To request a tutor for a specific course, please access Tutortrac, visit the Student Success Center located in the Bart Luedeke Center, suite 237, or contact Betty Vaneekhoven, Administrative Associate, at 609-896-5008 (studentsuccesscenter@rider.edu).

Drop-in Tutoring Sessions Led by Peer Content Tutors

Each semester, Tutoring Services provides many Drop-in Tutoring Sessions for specific courses. No appointment is necessary. Simply show up at the specified time and place with all of your course material (textbook, lecture notes, handouts, syllabus) ready to discuss with a peer tutor the course concepts that are puzzling you.

The Drop-in Peer Assisted Tutoring Sessions Schedule changes each semester and often has extra sessions added to it as the semester progresses. Please use the Tutortrac link to check our offerings throughout the semester and make sure that you are attending Drop-in Sessions designed for both your specific course and instructor.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) Sessions led by SI Leaders

Supplemental Instruction sessions are conducted by qualified peer tutors who are able to tailor their sessions to specific course content and the instructor’s pace because they attend classes and often have taken the course previously with the specific instructor their SI sessions are linked with.

Typically SI Leaders hold two review sessions per week. No appointment is necessary. Simply show up at the specified time and place with all of your course material (textbook, lecture notes, handouts, syllabus) ready to discuss the course concepts that are puzzling you. During SI sessions you can increase mastery of course content by using visual organizers, acquiring specialized course vocabulary, developing note-taking techniques, and preparing for exams.

Our statistics show that the mean final course grade of students who have taken advantage of SI is nearly half a grade higher than that of students who have not. Each semester approxiamtely 40% of the students enrolled in a course with SI have taken advantage of this valuable student-run resource.

The Supplemental Instruction Sessions Schedule changes each semester and often has extra sessions added to it as the semester progresses. Please refer to the Tutortrac site to check our offerings throughout the semester and make sure that you are attending SI sessions designed for both your course and your instructor.
