- BILD 1,2,3
The tutors will be available for the entire sessions listed below. If you are unable to attend the offered dates and times below, please email Abrina Wheatfall, Assistant Athletics Director (email@example.com). Efforts will be made to try and find the student-athlete the help they need.
Spring 2013 Tutoring/Study Table Schedule
Mondays: 6:45-8:45pm - Chem/Bio One-on-One Appointments & Open Study Table
Tuesdays: 7:00-9:00pm - Math/Physics One-on-Ones Appointments & Open Study Table
*Starting Week 3 (April 15th)
Wednesdays: 6:45-8:45pm- Chem/Bio One-on-One Appointments & Open Study Table
Thursdays: 6:00-8:00pm - Math/Physics One-on-One Appointments & Open Study Table
*Starting Week 3 (April 15)
Location: All study tables will be held in the main Athletic Department conference room on the 4th floor of RIMAC. One-on-one appointments will be held in the "Cove," the small conference room in the Athletic Department offices, also on the 4th floor of RIMAC. If the tutor is not in the Cove when you arrive, please check in with them in the larger conference room.
Description of Offerings:
-Math/Physics & Chemistry/Biology Study Tables: This is a dedicated time for homework and drop-in questions in these specific subjects. A tutor with expertise in the specific subject area will be available during the entire session. Depending on the number of student-athletes who attend, one-on-one help may or may not be feasible in this setting.
-One-on-One Appointments: Student-athletes are able to sign-up for a 30-minute one-on-one or small group session with the tutor. This allows more individualized help than might be possible in the study table sessions.
Appointment Sign-Ups: To reserve a one-on-one appointment, sign up on the sign-up sheet outside of the main Intercollege Athletics Department conference room (ICA Conference Room). Sign-ups sheets will become available each Wednesday morning for appointments the following week. There are a total of four 30-minute one-on-one appointments available each week in each subject. Be sure to sign up early. Also, it is best to email the tutor in advance about specific questions you might have in your one-on-one so he/she can be prepared for your appointment.
-Open Study Tables: This is time for student-athletes, regardless of subject area, to use a reserved space to do homework. There will be a tutor supervising the session but because this is not a subject-specific time, they will not be able to provide homework help unless your question pertains to their area of expertise and they are not conducting individual appointments.
Here is a list of tutors for this quarter:

The Math Department offers additional help with the Math 10 and Math 20 series through its Calculus Lab.
The Chemistry Department offers additional help with the Chemistry 6 series though its Chemistry Helproom.
The Physics Department offers additional help through its Physics Tutorial Center
OASIS (Office of Academic Support and Instructional Services) also offers tutorial services in various subject areas, particularly in the math and sciences. OASIS offers both workshops and Study Tables options.
- Workshops are structured group learning study-sessions, which are led by a tutor that explains course concepts and encourage a collaborative learning environment. Each workshop session is 2 hours and meets once or twice a week. Attendance is mandatory. Most workshops are course specific and pace a particular professor or lecture. Students must apply during 10th week of the current quarter for workshops the following quarter.
- Study Tables is tutoring that is available on a drop-in basis. Tutors are available to help explain concepts and answer questions at the available times and days posted. They will not do your homework. You do not need to sign up for Study Tables and may come in any time. However, you will need to sign in and out with a tutor.
