To Help You Meet the Challenge
College is challenging in the best of ways. To help you meet the challenge, St. Edward's University offers support from tutoring on class concepts to help with organization and managing your time.
Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction
Peer Tutoring for undergraduate students is one-on-one help from carefully selected and trained students who have taken and excelled in the course they tutor. Your first session is free!
*Due to COVID-19, Peer Tutoring is unfortunately suspended for the remainder of the semester. Please refer to St. Edward's offerings of LinkedIn Learning for additional resources.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) provides free review sessions for some of the most challenging courses. SI sessions are led by student leaders who did well in the course and are recommended by faculty. The weekly sessions are interactive and focus on the main concepts of the class. Data shows that students who attend SI regularly earn better grades!
*Due to COVID-19, Supplemental Instruction sessions for the remainder of the semester will continue in an online format via Zoom video conferencing. SI sessions will continue to be held on their normally scheduled days and times. Students will be advised by their SI leaders on how to access the online video conferencing tool. For any questions and concerns, please contact asp [at] stedwards.edu.
