Tutoring Support

The Center for Academic Success provides tutoring support to Alfred University students in a wide variety of disciplines. Tutors are typically undergraduate or graduate students who have been recommended by faculty members and who have done well in the target course or discipline.

If you need assistance with a class that is not supported by Supplemental Instruction or one of the Drop-in Tutoring disciplines, please take advantage of the following resources:

  • Your instructor's office hours (you can also email your instructor to set up a meeting)
  • Peer study groups (virtual or socially distanced): research shows that students learn more when studying together
  • Academic Skills Workshops: CAS hosts several workshops throughout the semester that focus on a variety of topics, such as note-taking, time-management, study skills, etc. The days and times of the workshops will be announced in Alfred Today.
  • Academic Consultation at CAS: set up a virtual meeting with one of our consultants to discuss how to study more effectively, manage your time and tasks more efficiently, reduce test-anxiety, etc.
