A DDS staff member may refer a student for tutorial services. There are several ways of obtaining tutorial services at Monmouth University.
Academic Skills Services
Writing Center — Located in the Center for Student Success, the Writing Center provides assistance to students in all undergraduate and graduate level courses that involve writing. Assistance is also available to students in Introductory Composition courses, General Education Literature courses, and Writing-Intensive courses. Language minority students can work with assistants who are trained in English as a second language and, more generally, all other undergraduate and graduate students can receive help to improve their writing.
Writing assistants include undergraduate and graduate students, professionals from the workplace, and faculty members from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines. Further details are available by calling the Writing Center at 732-571-7542 or by accessing the Writing Center Web site.
Math Learning Center — The Math Learning Center provides students with free assistance in all levels of mathematics. Peer tutors assist students in overcoming their problem areas and in developing competency in their specific math course. In addition, students may use the center to do homework assignments or to study for tests while having a student tutor available. Further details are available by calling the Math learning Center at 732-263-5305.
Tutoring Center — Also located in the Center for Student Success, the Tutoring Center provides free subject tutoring to all Monmouth University students. Peer tutors (students hired by the Tutoring Center who are excelling in academic achievement) assist students in subject-specific areas while Master tutors (MU professors) work with students on specific skill development such as textbook reading, test taking strategies, goal setting, time management, etc.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) — SI is a series of weekly review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses. SI is provided for all students who want to improve their understanding of course material and improve their grades. Students are given the opportunity to work with a SI leader, compare notes with other students in the class, discuss important concepts, develop strategies for studying subject material, and prepare for quizzes, tests, and exams. The SI leader is a competent student who has previously taken the course and attends lectures with the rest of the class, SI is also part of the Center for Student Success.
