University Park Tutoring

Fall 2022 Drop-in Tutoring Schedule:

  • Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 – 10:00 pm in E203 Westgate

Need help with 100 or 200-level (some 300-level) College of IST courses? Bring your questions, your partial work, and your course materials to the College’s Tutoring Sessions.

We provide  one-on-one coaching to help undergraduate students practice and reinforce concepts in the College of IST curriculum. 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 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 drop-in tutoring at University Park, contact Andrew Maier at tutoring-UP@ist.psu.edu.

What can tutees expect at our sessions?

Our Fall 2022 tutoring sessions are open forums held on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7:00pm to 10:00pm in E203 Westgate. No appointments are necessary; any IST student can simply walk in and ask for help. We encourage Learning Assistants to hold office hours during tutoring and student groups to use the tutoring space as a place to gather to work on projects.

While participating in our sessions, tutees can expect the following from the tutoring staff:

  • A positive attitude and supportive demeanor 
  • A culture of hard work and integrity
  • Fair, ethical, and equitable treatment of all students 
  • Discussion and explanation of unclear course concepts so that you can complete assignments and assessments on your own

We expect the following from students who attend tutoring:

  • Come ready and willing to actively participate in your learning by reviewing course notes and content ahead of time
  • Regularly attend the course(s) for which you are seeking support
  • Respect their fellow students’ time by not monopolizing tutors – especially when tutoring is crowded  
  • Abide by the IST Honor Code
