Now that the fall semester is two weeks underway, the Marshall University Tutoring Center has started to offer its services to students who have found themselves struggling with classwork and need a helping hand.The Tutoring Center offers free peer tutoring to part time and full time students at Marshall. Tutoring is available in five main categories: Business, math, modern languages, science, and social science/miscellaneous. There is also help offered in more specific and high-demand courses.The Tutoring Center is organized by a drop-in appointment schedule. These schedules contain the individual courses for each subject, the time tutoring will be provided, along with the name of the tutor. Drop-in tutoring is unlimited and based on a first-come, first-serve basis. Schedules are posted online and inside of the Tutoring Center.A student may also request individual tutoring sessions by appointment, but the center requires a minimum of a one-hour session for each appointment and restricts the weekly use of the center by appointment to two hours per course and two courses per week.Patricia Gallagher, academic counselor at the University College, said there is one thing she stresses above anything else.“Do not use the Tutoring Center as a last resort or wait until midterms come around to use the center,” Gallagher said. “You feel like you are struggling, come see us. The Tutoring Center is not just for struggling students, but can make the difference between an A or a B.”The Tutoring Center is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays throughout the fall semester.
