CLASSES SUPPORTED: Our tutors change semester-to-semester; the courses supported through the Peter R. Lord Tutoring Center will be updated on this website each semester. Wilson College of Textiles tutor schedules and the courses they support are outlined below.

Students are expected to come with any books, pencils, notes, calculators, online materials, etc. you need for completing your course work.

  • higher academic achievement
  • improved attitude toward learning and course work
  • better work and study habits
  • stronger relationships with peers
  • increased sense of community
  • improved personal and social development
  • increased motivation, self-esteem, and confidence

If you have questions or if you are interested in becoming a Wilson College tutor, please email Alyssa Jennings.

How To Sign Up For Tutoring

  1. Identify the course(s) you would like to receive tutoring support for from our list of supported courses.
  2. Determine what tutor(s) are available to assist you with the course(s), and view the tutoring schedule to see when they are available.
  3. Click on the name of the tutor you want to meet with to access their Google Calendar, and book your appointment at least 30 minutes in advance of when you would like to receive tutoring. You will then receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link for you to access your appointment.

How to Make the Most of Your Tutoring Appointment

  1. Have the syllabus for each course you are seeking tutoring for pulled up to review with your tutor at the start of each session. This will enable your tutor to get a better sense of what topics are covered in the course, how they are sequenced, and what graded assignments, if any, they are able to assist with.
  2. Bring any notes that you have prepared on the topic(s) you are seeking tutoring for, as well as any relevant course materials provided by your instructor(s). This will enable your tutor to review exactly what you’ve been doing and learning within a particular course, as well as how your instructor explains course content.
  3. Understand that your tutor is there to support your learning, not do your coursework for or with you. Tutors cannot help on graded assignments (homework problems, quizzes, etc.) unless it is specified on the syllabus that outside assistance is allowed. This is to ensure that there are no violations of academic integrity. When in doubt, ask your instructor.
