Why Tutoring?

Attending tutoring means you are investing time inside and outside the tutoring session in understanding the subject and implementing the critical thinking and problem-solving technique taught to you by the tutor.

How Does It Work?

Rocky's Resources tutoring is FREE and conveniently offered both in person at the Malpass Library (2nd floor) and via the video conferencing platform Zoom. Simply show up in person at the library to meet a tutor in person or click on the tutoring URL below and the Rocky's Resources team member will connect you virtually.

Tutoring Schedule and Instructions

  • NOTICE: THE LAST DAY OF TUTORING FOR THE SPRING 2022 SEMESTER WILL BE SUNDAY MAY 8TH FROM 5:00PM-10:00PM AVAILABLE BOTH IN THE LIBRARY AND ON ZOOM. THERE WILL BE NO TUTORING DURING FINALS WEEK.

  • If you have not installed Zoom on the device you will be using for the tutoring session (phone, tablet, iPad, desktop, laptop, or anything with a camera), it takes about 10 seconds to download the software.

  • The audio and video will automatically be enabled when you join the meeting. But your computer settings might be different. If so, just click on the microphone and/or video icons on the lower left side of the window as needed. You might also need to make sure the volume bar on your computer is turned up or down.
  • Make sure you are in a quiet location for your tutoring session so you can hear well and feel comfortable speaking to the tutor.
