Group and Individual Tutoring Updates
For the remainder of the spring semester the McGraw Center’s Undergraduate Learning Program, consisting of group (study hall) and individual tutoring, individualized learning consultations, and workshops, is modifying its offerings by moving them online.
Students will be able to receive tutoring (group and individual) in the same set of courses we have supported thus far this term. Students can also receive support for learning in any Princeton course and for independent work by signing up for individualized learning consultations conducted online.
Online learning strategy workshops on a variety of topics will be conducted as scheduled. All services are cost-free. (updated 3/23/20)
Over half of Princeton Students have used McGraw Tutoring for their Princeton courses. Tutoring is an integral part of many courses and we work closely with faculty to align our tutoring to their course goals.
Drop-in Group Study Hall Tutoring seeks to create a study group-like environment in order to help students become independent, flexible problem-solvers. To that end, tutors facilitate group interaction and learning so that students are actively thinking, explaining, solving problems and integrating their knowledge and thus making explicit their thinking and learning processes for themselves and others.
Appointment based Individual Tutoring allows for focused and individualized assistance for students who want a more personalized tutoring experience. Individual Tutoring is especially useful for students who want help with specific parts of the course, whose previous experience did not include preparation in an essential topic that they need for the course, or who want to enhance their foundational knowledge through the application of the course material. Individual Tutoring may be the place for students who, after preparing, are still struggling with defining their specific issues or have a broad range of questions/concepts to discuss.
