How can I make the most of tutoring?

Start early in the semester

Don’t wait until it’s too late! The earlier you come in, the better our tutors can help!

Come prepared

Bring your books, syllabus, assignments, notes, and any questions you have.


Let us know how we can help you! If there is something you don’t understand, ask for clarification

Be engaged and actively participate

Put away cell phones and devices to get the most out of your tutoring session.

Have realistic expectations

The Success Centers can help you on your way to success, but tutoring sessions cannot replace regular, attentive class attendance.

Remember the key to S_CCESS is U!

It is up to you to take the initiative to succeed, so visit the Success Center early and often!

Peer Tutor Program

Professional and peer tutors with expertise in specific content areas work directly with SWIC students to help them master the skills to be successful in courses.

Peer tutors work between 6 and 20 hours per week offering academic assistance to students. Tutors can provide assistance for any course in which they’ve received an A. All tutors attend 10 hours of initial tutor training, and receive mentoring from specialists and senior peer tutors.

The Success Center’s Tutor Training program is certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA), an international tutor certification organization. Most tutors leave the Success Center as internationally certified CRLA tutors, an excellent resume builder.
