General Tutoring Services Information

One-on-one tutoring sessions, offered by the Tutoring and Testing Center (TTC), are free. They are designed to be interactive and require active student participation. Tutoring is not available for NSU placement tests or CLEP examinations.

Subject-Based Tutoring

TTC offers supplemental assistance to students in their current coursework. Prior to tutoring sessions, students should have attended classes and attempted their assignments.

Keep in mind:

Writing Tutoring

Writing Across the Curriculum, NSU’s academic policy, requires that all courses include a significant writing component. TTC assists students in meeting their writing goals. Students are guided toward becoming more independent writers. Writing tutors actively engage students in all phases of the writing process. Common topics of discussion include brainstorming, organizing, revising, sentence structure, grammar, and research techniques. Writing tutoring is not an editing service.

Writing is a process requiring extensive time commitment. Therefore, a tutoring session may not allow for a review of an entire paper. Since tutoring sessions are learning experiences, students are expected to apply what they learn during their tutoring sessions to the remainder of their assignments and to subsequent assignments. Students are encouraged to plan sufficient time for tutoring sessions and independent follow-up revisions. Students are required to bring two double-spaced copies of their paper to each tutoring session. The tutor will make notes on and retain one of the copies.
