Announcement: Effective Fall 2020, the College of IST University Park peer tutoring program will occur online until further notice, due to the coronavirus outbreak. Accordingly, the University Park peer tutoring program will shift to an online format. Online tutoring for University Park students will be offered via Zoom. To connect with a “general tutor” on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, click on the “Click to Join” button below. From there, you will be directed to a brief survey as well as the Zoom link at the end of the survey.
Need help with first and second-year courses, or advanced statistics? Bring your questions, your partial work, and your course materials to the College’s Tutoring Sessions. Those who come ready to work will be served.
Tutoring sessions are not a place for others to do your work; only you can do the learning for yourself. Tutors are trained to help you puzzle through the problems on which you are stuck, but you will do the work of learning and reap the benefits!
The IST Peer Tutoring Program is a centralized academic support resource for students in the College of Information Sciences and Technology at Penn State. The tutoring initiative is a student-managed program funded by the College, and it provides one-on-one coaching to help students practice and reinforce concepts in our undergraduate curriculum.
Our subject-specific tutors and the LAs and TAs who help staff our sessions maintain partnerships with members of the College faculty, so that we are aware of what instructors are teaching and assigning each week. The tutors’ job is NOT to re-teach course material. Rather, the tutoring team will aid students in their learning by helping to clarify unclear concepts and by supporting students as they practice skills and apply new understandings.
If you have questions about tutoring, please contact the Tutoring Session Co-Coordinator, Jimmy Kane, by emailing him using one of the following links:
