Tutoring Information

Peer tutoring is available to Simpson University students through the Academic Success Center. Our major focus is on the core level classes, but we do provide tutoring as available for upper level classes. Students are expected to come having completed the reading and assignments for which they desire clarification on and help understanding. Tutors will provide students with techniques to learn, organize, and understand the information that is presented in class and through the texts. Tutors will not do your homework for you. For more information or for the tutoring schedule contact the ASC.
