Mission Statement

It is the mission of Tutoring Services (TS) to provide academic support in a welcoming, nonjudgmental and caring environment while promotiing independent learning and improved academic skills.

About Tutoring Services

Tutoring Services (UTS) provides academic support for currently enrolled UW-Platteville students in a variety of undergraduate courses. Tutoring services are a means to supplement classroom instruction, foster independent learning, and assist students in improving their academic skills. TS offers academic support for students through individual tutoring and drop-intutoring sessions facilitated by peer tutors. This assistance allows students to develop a deeper understanding of course concepts with the support of peer tutors who clarify course material, assist with study skills, and provide motivation as role models.

INDIVIDUAL Weekly tutoring

Students meet with the same tutor throughout the semester on a weekly basis. Students choose between one or two sessions a week. 

This option is for those students who prefer personal attention and consistent support for their learning and development of study skills. Students complete a tutor request form and receive additional information by visiting the TS office. There is a minimal charge for this service. 

Scheduled Tutoring

Students meet with an available tutor for a 30 minute one-on-one session as needed. Students schedule a time to meet with the tutor by calling or visiting the TS office. 

This option is for students who may want occasional support or who need clarification on certain course concepts during specific times in the semester. Currently this option is available for students in Chemistry 1140, 1240, 1450, Elementary Statistics 1830 and Calculus I and II. There is no charge for this service. 

Drop-In tutoring

Students visit with a tutor on a walk-in basis during scheduled times. A tutor must support all the students that visit during this time so one-on-one support may be very limited. The schedule for this service will be shared with faculty and students enrolled in the course. Schedule information can also be obtained by calling or visiting the TS office. 

This option is for students who have quick questions about course concepts for who need minor clarification of course concepts. This is also a good option for students who are confortable working in groups. Currently this option is available for students in:

  • Chemistry 1140, 1240, and 1450
  • Spanish 1840, 1940, 2840, and 2940
  • Statics 2130
  • Math of Finance
  • Elementary Statistics

There is no charge for this service, but students will be asked to sign-in during each visit.
