The Tutoring Center

Chowan University's Tutoring Center, located in Robert Marks Hall 118, provides academic assistance to all students for any of our courses.

Responsible and academically successful students are waiting to help you in a one-on-one environment. Whether you need help with homework, study advice, editing essays or more, our experienced academic assistants will personally guide you on the path of knowledge. Our assistants, in addition to helping with specific course-related needs, will tutor students in strengthening academic skills such as taking notes in class, planning a study schedule, reading for comprehension or using new technology. 

Students who come to the Tutoring Center will receive help from a peer or upperclassman, so students will know their tutors care and can sympathize with the stress of academic pursuits. Your tutors have all been there themselves and can relate. Since many students need extra help during exams, the Tutoring Center, normally operating Monday through Thursday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., extends their hours during Finals. No appointment is necessary, so just stop by the top floor of the library whenever you need assistance.
