Tutoring is Beneficial
This is not high school where a student can often coast by; succeeding at University level requires taking classes seriously. At the same time, there are many other opportunities to get involved and enjoy these four years including football games, Greek life, and outdoor activities. A student needs to be able to balance all of this which can prove daunting to many. But since they have such a selective admissions process, the understanding is that many of these students have already been faced with balancing academics and social and civic activities.
If your student mentions they are having difficulty, there are many places to turn including speaking with their professor or teacher assistant. There are also peer academic study groups. For many classes, students are turning to outside assistance.
Students also speak highly of the Knack App, a peer-to-peer tutoring approach that allows students to find peers through the app that have done well in particular courses and schedule on their time. They offer package pricing and they do offer discounts for higher hour packages including a semester pack and a yearly pack.
Textbook rental and purchase company Chegg offers Chegg Study for $14.95. Students have found success working with their specialists. They offer study help in business (finance, economics, accounting, operations management), Engineering (computer science, electrical, mechanical and civil engineering), Math (algebra, calculus, stats and probability, and other math) and science (physics, chemistry, biology). For more personal help, they also have Chegg Tutor which gives more one-on-one help.
All schools have some kind of Academic Success Center that offers to tutor on many subjects. They also offer study skills classes and standardized test prep. Stay ahead of the game and don’t fall behind. Getting help is not unusual, it means you take this college thing seriously. Tutoring is beneficial!
