TUTORING

Sometimes students may need a little extra help with courses at UVU. To help in this area, TRiO provides a free, professional, one-on-one tutoring in those subjects where students have traditionally shown the greatest need, i.e., math, English, and science related courses. The peer instructors working for TRIO SSS are typically working towards a bachelor degree in the subjects they tutor. In addition, they care about students and are invested in student success. As with all other services offered to students through the TRIO SSS Department, tutoring is absolutely free to you.

MENTORING

The TRiO Student Support Services Program Mentoring Program (TSSSM) was designed to assist students who are experiencing academic difficulties. The TSSSM program is to help clients improve their academic standing, to promote wise choices and/or improve their life skills and attitudes. The Mentors are to act as guides to the clients. Assisting them to understand the university culture, including what is expected of them as students at a university and to help understand course assignments. Their role is to “be there” for clients and, as helping paraprofessionals, to determine academic and social needs.
