SuccessCenter.3

UTPB's AVID trained tutors are located in the Success Center, Mesa Building room 2101.

The Success Center tutors are excited to help you with any questions you have about your coursework. The tutors use a Socratic method approach in their sessions. This allows students to expand their understanding and application of a subject area and not simply hear the information again. 

The sign of a good tutoring session means you find yourself relying on a tutor less and less. In other words, our Success Center focuses on empowering students. It is our job to make sure you not simply understand the material, but that you can show your instructor that you can master the material! 

Walk in sessions are available with Writing and STEM tutors. Scheduled and standing appointments are available with writing tutors only.

See below for a comprehensive listing of all Success Center tutors, as well as courses that are supported by each tutor for the Spring of 2016.
