They have successfully completed the courses that they tutor and are acquainted with faculty members and instructors in the departments. University faculty members recommend them to CAPS. The CAPS tutor-training program is certified by a national college organization, the College Reading and Learning Association.
CAPS offers individual tutoring for most courses numbered 100 - 399. A student must be officially enrolled in the course for which tutoring is requested. A student may make 25 minute or 50 minute appointments with tutors to review notes, work problems, or better understand lectures and textbooks. Individual tutoring appointments may be made in person at CAPS or by phoning 277-7205 and may be made one week in advance. Individual appointments are conducted at CAPS on the Third Floor of Zimmerman Library.
