Success Stories

“If you feel you can’t grasp the material on your own then that's what tutoring is there for. At tutoring you can get help 1 on 1 and ask many questions without worrying about bothering the tutor because they are here for you”

-Sarah, Software Development and Network Engineering program

“If you study alone you might not know your weakness but you can overcome that by working in tutoring groups or 1 on 1 [to help identity areas of improvement]”

-Yui, English Learning Studies program

“The tutors have so much knowledge that we [may] not have. They’re a good resource especially for first year students”

-Miranda, Architectural Technician/Technology program

You should attend tutoring because “you can’t wait or expect teachers to be perfect. I believe everyone is the master of their own destiny and tutoring helps to have perspective from another student (the tutor)”

-Matthew, Welding Techniques program

“English is my second language so I barely understand what the prof says so I can ask the tutors and they cover more specific information that the profs don’t cover in class"

-Steven, Architectural Technician/Technology program

“Tutoring is very helpful because there [are few] chances to speak English with friends but if you attend tutoring you have lots of opportunity to practice. You can make a friend with the tutors, and from them, you can get a lot of help to upgrade your English”

-Sehyun (Eric), English Learning Studies program
