Let your Specialist know if you might need a tutor. Through a cooperative program between DSP/TRIO and the Student Learning Center (SLC), some DSP/TRIO students may be teamed with well-trained SLC tutors.
The SLC offers credit-bearing classes linked to lecture courses, as well as tutoring, study groups, problem sessions, exam reviews, and mini-lectures—all designed to improve students' mastery of course material.
Individual consultations are also available on assistance with: major selection, college requirements, and coursework to prepare for graduate school; test anxiety reduction; and reading efficiency.
Maire Lanigan and Philaine Seher hold drop-in hours at DSP from 10am to noon and 1-3pm on Thursdays. They can assist you with your courses, schedule, academic progress, and other requirements. Check our calendar for last-minute changes in their schedule.
