With transitioning back to in-person classes, and in some cases, hybrid courses, comes the challenge for students of how to reengage or engage for the first time with needing help with their courses. This includes tutoring, study skills and tips, as well as how to advocate for their own needs with their instructors now that their instructors are back in person.
The Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) has a host of resources to help new and current students learn meaningful study tips, which can be found on their website here: https://tilt.colostate.edu/Learning/LearningResources/OnlineResources.
However, for this Fall 2021 semester, TILT is hosting new learning programs with an emphasis on students who have a major within the College of Natural Sciences. These tutoring courses offer assistance for the following courses:
Precalc Center (open to ANY student taking precalc): MATH 117, 118, 124, 125, 126
Calc Center: MATH 155, 160, 161, 261, and 340
Statistics Success Center: STAT 201, 204, 301, 315
CLeRC: 107/108, 111/112, 113/114, 245/246, 341/343/344
Alternatively, you can send the poster below to your student if they are currently enrolled in one or more of these courses.
Another option that your student has includes Eagle Feather Tutoring through the Native American Cultural Center, which typically hosts student tutors who are familiar with some of the courses posted above. Your student can find more info about Eagle Feather Tutoring here – https://nacc.colostate.edu/programs/eagle-feather-tutoring/. Their schedule can be found here – https://nacc.colostate.edu/wp-content/uploads/sites/20/2021/01/Online-NACC-Spring-2021-Tutoring-Schedule.pdf.
Remember that your student can always followup with their advisor to see if their major has specific tutoring or academic assistance with their courses. As well, instructors love students who take the time to go to their instructor’s office hours. These are often valuable moments where your student can not just get the academic help they are looking for, but they can also build a connection with an instructor, which itself can lead to many more opportunities beyond class.
