Tutoring Notes

2018-2019: The overall amount of tutoring increased by more than 400 appointments.  The library now handles over 95% of all campus tutoring.  Tutoring for engineering classes increased substantially, but this was expected because of the marketing strategies used throughout both semesters for upper division engineering classes.  Math also increased dramatically, and the increase can be contributed to offering more upper division math classes.  Nursing test prep tutoring sessions are still incredibly popular, and group tutoring and test prep tutoring sessions will expand to include other disciplines starting in the fall 2019 semester.

2017-2018: This year, the amount of time spent tutoring increased, but the number of tutoring appointments decreased because the default tutoring appointment duration was changed to 30 minutes instead of 15. The library now handles over 90% of campus tutoring. Nursing tutoring continued to increase dramatically, and foreign languages tutoring increased as well. This year group tutoring started with nursing classes, which was focused on preparing for class tests. Group tutoring will expand to other disciplines next year because it was very well attended.

2016-2017: This year multiple tutoring locations scheduled and tracking appointments through TechConnect. The library handles almost 90% of campus tutoring, and this year was its busiest year. Chemistry and nursing tutoring increased dramatically, and physics also continues to increase.

2015-2016: Tutoring appointments for Fall 2015 were fairly steady compared to the previous fall, but the amount of time decreased. This year the appointment duration default was 30 minutes and tutees were asked to be prepared when they arrived. This accounts for the decrease in total time and for decreased average appointment time. Spring 2016 saw a decrease compared to the previous spring, mostly in the subject areas of computer science and writing. Changes this year that relates to tutoring include math classes using the emporium model, a nursing tutoring partnership, computer science courses incorporated embedded tutors, the library took over foreign language tutoring management, tutoring appointments are scheduled online, and Class+ started in Fall 2015 with some math and history classes.

2014-2015: Tutoring became part of the Library's Public Services in August 2014. These statistics are solely for tutoring that is located in the library and not any other locations on campus. Statistics from Summer 2014 are not available. Statistics from the Summer 2015 semester will be included in the 2015-2016 statistics. We also survey the students who receive tutoring about their experiences. Future plans for tutoring include better seating and a defined area with a wall to avoid some of the noise and logistic issues. We are also moving to students making online appointments for tutoring with Fall 2015.
