Meet with Content Tutors for more specific help in a course; they are familiar with courses and professors in their specific subject. A Content Tutor can help you practice equations and problem solving, improve study skills, understand readings, clarify assignments, and develop new methods of learning and remembering.
The mission of the Rollins College Tutoring Program is to help our fellow students find more effective strategies to improve their learning. In a relaxed atmosphere, our individual and group tutoring sessions lead to a deeper understanding of the concepts learned in the classroom. We tailor activities to student clients' learning needs and styles, empowering them to take responsibility for both their successes and their failures. We hope that as our clients' skills increase, so will their confidence and their ability to learn independently.
