Tutoring & Mentoring

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.

Peer Tutoring

All Malone undergraduate students may take advantage of the free tutoring offered for most 100 and 200 level undergraduate courses. During the summer, tutoring is limited. Please contact us for details. 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.

Appointment Requests

Please submit a Tutor Request Form.

Students and tutors will meet in the new Tutoring & Mentoring Center on the second floor of the Cattell Library. All subject area tutoring, including math, will also take place in the library.

Confirmation emails will be sent for all tutoring requests. Tutoring services are free; however, no-shows for scheduled appointments will be charged $20.
