Goals of Tutoring
At the Learning Center our goal is to:
- Enhance students' understanding of course material through individual tutoring sessions.
- Enrich the overall academic experience for New York Tech students.
- Demonstrate effective learning and study techniques that facilitate deeper understanding of subjects.
- Engage students in problem solving and critical thinking to become independent learners.
Some of the courses you’ll take at New York Tech are exceptionally challenging. Through Supplemental Instruction, SI Leaders will prepare and hold peer-led, discussion-based sessions to tackle those tough courses, in addition to regular class meetings. SI’s are rare, so if it’s available in your course(s) be sure to take advantage!
ACADEMIC SKILL WORKSHOPS
Our professional Enrichment Staff in the AEC are available for Workshops which are designed to the individual student to build your "toolbox" of strategies. Topics include:
- Time Management
- Test-Taking Techniques
- Study Skills and Planning
