Learning Support and Tutoring
The overarching objective of Learning Support at Lee University is to provide instructional assistance and learning opportunities for students. This goal is accomplished through the procurement and utilization of enhanced technological services for instruction and student monitoring and through facilitation of supplemental instruction sessions, especially in courses that have been identified as being traditionally challenging for students. Additionally, a strong network of student support is being built across campus through collaboration with the Center for Teaching Excellence to assist in faculty development and through coordination with the Lee University Writing Center and Math Lab.
Our Peer Tutors offer individual tutoring online, by appointment, in a variety of courses. To schedule an individual course tutoring appointment, visit https://www.tutormatchingservice.com/leeuniversity and search the list of available tutors. If you cannot find a tutor for your class on TutorMatchingService, you can request assistance through the Student Hub link in the Lee University App or stop by the PCSU, room 304.
In addition to individual tutoring, we have several online drop-in tutoring labs where students can get help with Math, Science, French, Spanish, and Business classes. You can find the tutoring lab schedules and links to drop in for tutoring HERE.
Lee University’s Writing Center exists to help you improve as a writer. Our trained writing tutors accomplish this goal through collaboration and conversation, not through editing or “correcting” your papers for you. By working with you on your writing—by responding as readers to the drafts you’ve written or by asking questions about ideas you might have—our tutors aim to help you develop the ways of thinking and reading that can lead to effective writing. Our tutors are trained to work with a diverse population and thus welcome native and non-native English speakers, as well as students from any major or discipline on campus. The writing center is located in WAT 101. To sign up for an appointment, access the Writing Center Schedule through the University Services link on Portico, or go directly to the Writing Center site.
