The Study

Peer TutoringThe Study offers drop-in peer tutoring for many 100 and 200-level math, science and business courses. Certified peer tutors are available to assist with homework, exam prep, study strategies and more — all for free. 

Students can expect to learn from and along side peers in a relaxed and welcoming environment. The Study offers both in-person and virtual drop-in tutoring options.  

In-Person Drop-In Tutoring

The Study operates three on-campus locations where students can drop-in for tutoring any time we're open!  Hours of operation vary by location and we strongly encourage students to check the drop-in tutoring schedule to ensure a tutor is available for the course they are seeking assistance with.


The Study Central, located at the Hilary J. Boone Center, is opened Monday - Thursday 2-10pm.

The Study North, located at Jewell Hall, is opened Monday - Thursday, 2-10pm.

The Study South, located at Pigman Hall (formerly Woodland Glen III), is opened Sunday - Wednesday, 4-10pm. 


Virtual Drop-In Tutoring

Students now have the opportunity to access The Study's peer tutoring online!  Virtual drop-in tutoring is available Monday - Thursday, 4-8pm.  Students can check the Drop-in Tutoring Schedule for subject availability and chat to join their tutor's GoBoard. 


What does online tutoring look like?

Similar to our in-person tutoring, you can expect to work in a small group with your tutor and other students enrolled in the same course. Feel free to pop in to tutoring to ask a single question, or stay awhile and work through a few homework problems. Virtual drop-in tutoring also provides a great chance to review for an upcoming quiz or exam.


What is GoBoard?

All virtual tutoring sessions will be conducted via GoBoard, an interactive platform that combines video conferencing with an interactive canvas, making it perfect for collaboration with your tutor. With GoBoard you can:

  • See and hear the group, or use text chat to communicate 
  • Share the graphing calculator, molecular bonds creator, reference library and other tools
  • Upload work to a shared canvas, simply by snapping a photo and texting it in


What do I need to know before I begin?

  • Make sure you are using a Google Chrome browser to access GoBoard
  • Allow GoBoard to access your webcam and microphone for best results

  • GoBoard is not available on mobile devices.  Please join virtual tutoring from your iPad, laptop, or desktop computer.


 Common Hour Study Groups

#StudySmarter for your common hour exams with the assistance of our peer tutors! We've worked with faculty to create comprehensive review sessions with questions similar to what you'll see on your exam. 

For the fall semester, Common Hour Study Groups sessions will be held in-person approximately one week prior to the course's exam date. To view the Spring 2023 CHSG schedule, click here.

The Study has found students who attend both drop-in tutoring as well as CHSG sessions, on average, do better in their course than those who attend only CHSG sessions. Therefore, we strongly encourage students to also access free drop-in peer tutoring early and often!
