Tutoring is offered in fall and spring semesters only, by appointments and we will try to accommodate walk-ins as long as a tutor is available. Summer tutoring is done through Smarthinking.com (available in any Blackboard course under Course Tools)


Students must bring a completed Tutoring Referral Form, signed by their instructor, to the first appointment for each subject in which they are requesting tutoring. Tutoring services are not available to students without a Tutoring Referral Form on file. Online tutoring signup is not available without first submitting the Tutoring Referral Form by visiting the Student Success Center and then getting registered in our tutor database. Instructors can access a fillable Tutoring Referral Form by logging into the Faculty/Staff section of the webpage and clicking Employee Documentation and then Employee Forms.

Test Anxiety

If you “freeze” during tests and miss questions when you know the answers, you might be suffering from test anxiety. Believe it or not, a little nervousness before a test can actually help you to perform better. The butterflies in your stomach are from extra adrenaline that can sharpen your awareness and keep you alert. However, if the tension is extreme, it can cause loss of sleep, loss of appetite, and poor performance on tests.
