Tutoring allows students to utilize their collective knowledge to achieve a shared academic goal: UNDERSTANDING! By taking advantage of the various tutoring programs available through ESS, students will have the opportunity to interact with other students and to engage collaboratively in the course material. Additionally, students will benefit from the collective experience of the SI leaders and tutors who have already completed the course.

Peer Tutoring

Peer Tutors are fellow students who are trained to work with you on an individual basis. They can reinforce what you already know, model new ways of learning, and connect notes and readings. To sign up for an individual peer tutoring appointment, simply visit tutortrac.case.edu. You will enter your CWRU User ID and password and click on "Make Appointment."

Spoken English Language Programs

Spoken English tutoring is available for improving pronunciation, conversational, and fluency skills. Appointments are on a first-come, first-serve basis for undergraduate and graduate students. Appointments can be made at tutortrac.case.edu.

Study Group +1

Students can strengthen their understanding through discussion of course content in a peer tutor-supported study group of no more than 5 students. It allows students to utilize their collective knowledge to achieve the shared academic goal of student understanding. For more information and to submit a request for your group, click here.

Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is available each semester in selected undergraduate courses in mathematics, sciences, and engineering. SI Leaders are trained and experienced peer educators, each of whom has been successful in his or her assigned course. SI Leaders attend the course to which they have been assigned and conduct weekly study sessions designed to give students the opportunity to actively engage in course material. View the SI schedule.

TutorTrac (tutortrac.case.edu) is a web-based application used to schedule tutoring appointments for Case Western Reserve University students. Students can schedule up to five tutoring appointments in a seven-day period, free of charge. Learn how to get started.

Writing Resource Center
