Peer and Professional Tutoring
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.
Free Peer Tutoring
All Malone undergraduate students may take advantage of the free Peer Tutoring offered for most 100 and 200 level undergraduate courses.
Our online request system is currently under development. Students will be able to view the names of our Peer Tutors and the Subject Areas/Classes covered. Students may then choose appointment times (24-hour minimum notice required) according to Peer Tutor availability. Students and tutors will meet in our newly renovated main Tutor Room in Founders Hall 60 (at the west end of the Center for Student Success). Additional private tutoring rooms are available for overflow in FH 36 and FH 37. All subject area tutoring, including Math, will take place here in Founders Hall.
Confirmation and reminder emails will be sent for all tutoring appointments. Peer Tutoring services are free; however, no-shows for scheduled appointments will be charged $20.
Students can also take advantage of professional tutoring, which does have a fee and is provided upon request. Students with disabilities are given priority to this fee-based service. Charges will be applied to student accounts in the Business Office.
Tier One provides 20 hours of tutoring per semester for $400
- Tier Two provides 40 hours of tutoring per semester for $800
- Tier Three provides 60 hours of professional tutoring for $1,200
- Tier Four provides 80 hours of professional tutoring for $1,600

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 on Wednesdays at 10 a.m. for community worship services), 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.
