Tutoring Pilot program- Christine Reichert Director of Academic Enrichment Center-

  • Will be starting in the fall. Pharmacy faculty met and determined the most high-risk courses (most intense).
    P1: PPT1, Pharmacology, Med Chem, Biochem
  • Will primarily be group tutoring and extra drop in and group sessions the week before exams
  • There won’t be individual tutoring without authorization
  • May expand down the road to supplemental instruction etc. but not yet.
  • Tutoring will begin after the 3rd week which will give a chance for tutors to meet, be trained and established
  • Estimated to hold 52 group sessions a week but will probably be an over estimation, so target is to get 15 tutors for the year
  • Hours are very flexible and you could even do this during specified times (ex if you’re off on rotations some months)
  • Tutor recruitment will begin soon, Friday April 15th. Students must have a B+ or better in the course and have to complete an interview.
  • Tutors can be volunteer (preferred, may open up to more scholarship opportunities), work study, and hired from budget (tough with upcoming budget cuts)
  • Need help to promote the open house!  Will be held on the 5th floor of Mulford Library in the Academic Enrichment Center, Friday, April 15th beginning around 11:00am
