Tutoring Services strives to support you and your course goals by providing a variety of peer tutoring services such as appointment-based 1:1 tutoring hours (MacPhaidin 314) for writing and over (35) specific subjects.

Our tutors are undergraduates seeking to gain more in-depth knowledge in their respective subjects while acquiring valuable experience by providing peer assistance. The peer tutors must be recommended by a faculty member and are hired and trained through Tutoring Services.

We also offer students the opportunity to work with a professional writing tutor at no additional cost burden. This makes Tutoring Services not only exceptional but unique among higher education institutions. 

Booking an Appointment

All students have access to TutorTrac. TutorTrac is updated on a semester-basis meaning students can easily search our schedule and book appointments with ease by simply signing-in with their Stonehill username and password. 

Our schedule is updated on our website and TutorTrac. Please check your email for updates and feel free to reach out, if you would like to request a poster or flyer. 

Classroom Visits

Seeking a tutor can be overwhelming for students, especially if they do not know what to expect. Our tutors would love to visit your class and talk about what it's like at Tutoring Services!

We will only need (5) minutes of class time. Look for our messaging to arrange these visits in the beginning of the semester.  

Faculty Reports

From time to time, you may receive a list of students that attended tutoring services. Please note that Tutoring Services gives students the option whether or not to share their visit with you. If a student is not listed on the Faculty Report, this does not mean students are not attending tutoring---it simply means that students have chosen not to share. 

Referrals for Tutoring & Questions about Services

Faculty referral is a key determinant in whether a student seeks out tutoring services. We depend on you to send students to Tutoring Services and/or to make us aware if you notice a student who may benefit.

But what is the best way to do that?

Sending an email in the beginning of the course and before midterms/finals or posting our flyer in your office and referring directly to it can remind students about our services. It is helpful to emphasize that everyone uses Tutoring Services.

An important message for students is that tutoring is not simply for struggling students, but even students who want to go from a B+ to an A. 

Do you know someone who would benefit from tutoring and would like us to reach out? Or, do you have a question about tutoring? Please use the Contact Information, and we would be happy to connect with you. 

Want to Collaborate?

We can't do it without you! Please reach out to Devon Deery about potential ideas and future programming. Our community is exceptional, and we believe that relationship-building is key to all our success.
