Academic success takes planning and effort. Treat it as your first full-time job.
Academic success involves spending time outside the classroom preparing for class. In fact, this is vital for achieving course and academic goals. Studies show that for every hour in the classroom you should plan to spend approximately two to three hours outside the classroom studying, organizing notes, reading assignments, and completing group projects.
All Malone undergraduate students may take advantage of the free peer tutoring offered for most 100 and 200 level courses.
General Free Walk-in Sessions:
Feel free to attend the subject area walk-in sessions offered during the free non-chapel blocks and between 4 and 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday. These sessions take place in the Cattell Library Seminar F on the second level (unless otherwise specified). Here is the current walk-in schedule for free tutoring.
Please be in the room at the beginning of the hour scheduled, as the tutors are only required to wait 15 minutes for those they are tutoring.
For All Math Assignments:
Use the math lab, located in the lowest level of the Cattell Library (26D) to work on homework assignments or to study for an exam with one of the tutors on staff.
Walk-in times are noted on the same schedule above. Tutor email contacts are provided for additional requests.
For All Writing Assignments:
Visit The Writing Center @ Malone, located at the entrance to the Cattell Library, to have trained tutors review your writing assignments.
Thirty-minute appointments are available for as many times as necessary to prepare for, draft, revise, edit, and finish any writing assignment.
Call 330.471.8327 for an appointment. Center hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. (closed for Chapel), and Fridays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Requests for tutoring help for 300 and 400 level courses will be met if possible, but are not guaranteed. In the upper-level courses, it is best for students to take the initiative to form a small study group of equally serious students and work directly with instructors during their office hours.
