Academic Performance and Tutoring Center
Just as it was when we were learning to walk, most of us continue to need a little extra support when we are faced with new concepts and unfamiliar course material. If you have a homework question or didn’t quite grasp a specific concept, come on over and let our tutors give you that support at DSU. We provide drop-in tutoring, small group tutoring, and techniques that will help you become a successful, lifelong learner. We are here to help you with supplemental instruction as well as developmental coaching and mentoring.
Drop-in tutoring is convenient and very user-friendly! Located on the 4th floor of the Holland Building, this tutoring is available six days a week at no cost to all registered DSU students! Primarily focusing on select general education courses, math, and sciences, we invite you to come to the Center – without having to make and keep an appointment – at any time a tutor in your subject area is available. Tutor and subject availability may vary by day and week.
Drop-in tutoring is a hassle-free way for students to work on assignments independently while having tutor assistance when needed. It also encourages the formation of study groups because students with the same needs often come together in the Center. Tutors circulate through the Center and answer questions as they arise on a first-come, first-served basis.
Available subjects vary by student demand and tutor availability. For that reason, we post a weekly detailed schedule that can be accessed from the link on this page or by viewing it in the Center. Just locate the subject in which you are interested, find the times tutoring is scheduled, and choose the best time for you!
We are happy to meet as many individual requests as possible, so students are encouraged to let the Center know if you have needs that don’t appear on the schedule. We make every effort to accommodate as many students in as many disciplines as possible. Just call or visit the Director or any staff tutor.
Tutors are available as scheduled throughout the course of the Fall and Spring Semesters. Hours are 10am to 8pm (Monday through Thursday), 10am to 5pm on Fridays, and from 1 to 4 pm on Saturdays. Hours are subject to change due to holidays, breaks, or other relevant factors, so make sure we are open by calling 435-879-4731. Summer hours are also available.
If you are interested in becoming a tutor, please contact Rowena Thiess at 435-879-4733 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us in Room 431 of the Holland Centennial Commons.
