Free, online support for your student
December 11, 2020

Tutoring might sound like an elementary term, but even college students need academic support. A wide variety of free, subject-specific online tutoring resources is available to your student if they need help. Maybe they’re even thinking of being a tutor or mentor themselves?

Below is a list of just some of our tutoring resources. If your student is looking for additional academic support, their instructors and advisers are always available to talk.

Peer tutors work with students to develop skills, strategies and confidence to improve their writing.

Tutoring is free and confidential.

Math Teaching and Learning Center

The Math TLC is where your student can learn basic math skills. Teachers start daily classroom sessions with a short lect ure, then students begin online homework assignments with help from teachers and specially trained peer tutors.

The Math Tutor Lab serves a variety of math courses, and tutors do their best to help every student. Tutoring is available online. If your student is seeking help with math, they can view the tutoring schedule to contact an available tutor.

Additional online subject-specific tutoring resources in biology,  business, chemistry, computer-aided drafting, computer science, economics, physics and psychology are available in StoutCloud.

Mentoring Program

If your first-year student is seeking a peer mentor to share experiences, learn study tips, or is looking for ways to get involved on campus, they can check out the Stout MentorLink.

If your sophomore, junior, or senior is passionate about helping others learn how to navigate campus and college life, encourage them to volunteer as a peer mentor.
