In your college career you may encounter a class or two that could prove more challenging than expected, resulting in you needing a little extra bit of assistance. At Southern Utah University you can always ask for help at the Tutoring Center.

The Tutoring Center is a great resource on campus that supports you through some of your more difficult courses in an engaging and approachable way. The center utilizes tutors that bring experience, expertise, and enthusiasm for learning. Over 50 tutors, who have been recommended by faculty, can work with you in either a group or one-on-one settings. They can help you in deepening your understanding of course material and develop study and test-taking skills.

It is a perfect environment for students who need a little extra assistance in their courses.

SUU's Tutoring Center is unique in that there are several different types of tutoring formats to meet students' needs (walk-in, group, or long-term one-on one), said Toni Sage, director of Academic Success. “We provide tutoring across multiple disciplines (Accounting, Economics, History, Math, Biology, Chemistry, PE, Management, etc.), and if we don't have a tutor for a particular course, we will do our best to try to find one.”

Not sure how to get a tutor? Here’s how:

1. Go to the Tutoring Center on campus and check in at the front desk computer. This gives you access to the Tutor "Queue System".

     a. Log on to your My SUU Portal

“There are many reasons I encourage students to use the Tutoring Center, but it mostly boils down to the fact that is a great place to learn course material in a supportive, risk-free environment,” said  Sage.

The Tutoring Center is located in the ELC room 204.  During the fall and spring semester, the Center is open  Monday-Thursday from 9:00am-7:00pm and Fridays 9:00am- 4:00pm. Summer hours are from Monday-Friday 9:00am-5:00pm.  If you have any questions regarding the Tutoring Center you can contact Toni Sage at 435-586-7711 or tonisage@suu.edu.
