What We Do

At Regis University’s Tutoring Services, our main goal is to provide students individualized, and group tutoring assistance, in various subject areas to support and enhance their academic experience at Regis University.

Who We Are

The Tutoring Services team consists of a combination of faculty-nominated peer tutors and administrative staff. All of our tutors have a passion for helping others improve their study skills and reach their academic goals.

Tutors can adjust to a student’s learning style, ask questions, and provide strategies that promote development of short and long term learning goals. Tutors receive training on an ongoing basis to keep up to date on best practices.

Tutoring Services Mythbusters

MYTH: Tutors have/will give me all the answers.

FACT: Tutors do not have all the answers. While they can help with basics and more, it is at times challenging for them to answer specific questions without preparation. Use the "What would you like to work on today?" section on the appointment form to better equip your tutor for your session. Similarly, tutors do not have ready-made answers to quizzes, tests, and exams.

MYTH: Tutors will do/fix my work for me.

FACT: Tutors cannot do/fix your homework for you; however, depending on the subject and your level of attention and participation, they will help you with a host of study areas including topic comprehension, definition, illustration, preparation, computation, practice, quiz, review, analyze, study tips, etc.

MYTH: Tutors will have/know what I need for my session.

FACT: Tutors cannot know what you need and greatly appreciate students who prep for sessions beforehand and have specific questions about assigned texts/problems, have awareness of in-class instruction, and bring necessary tools (books, notes, formulas, calculators, assignments, etc.).

Also, remember that it is difficult to learn everything in one session. Give yourself and your tutor time to make your tutoring sessions productive.

Resources for Faculty

Tutoring Services complements classroom instruction by providing one-on-one and small group tutoring in many disciplines.
