TRIO/SSS Subject Area Tutoring

Undergraduate students who are eligible for TRIO/Student Support Services may be able to receive one on one tutoring free of charge. Maybe you’re falling behind or completely lost in one of your classes. Maybe you have a B that you want turned into an A. Maybe you have a specific academic skill that needs strengthening. Whatever your reason, working with a peer tutor can be one of the best ways to be successful in a class. Tutoring is supplemental education, designed to support your understanding of the material from lecture, lab, and your textbook.

CFAR has a trained staff of outstanding peer tutors. If you think working with a tutor is what you need to achieve your goals, visit us during walk-in hours, Monday through Thursday, 11:00am to 3:00pm. 

TRIO/SSS students:  Not sure if you're eligible for TRIO/SSS services? Click here or meet with a CFAR educational counselor during drop-in hours.
