CFAA - Tutoring
CFAA - Learning Services
The first day of tutoring for spring 2021 will be Monday, January 25th.
The Center for Academic Achievement (CFAA) at East Tennessee State University (ETSU) is home to Learning Services (Tutoring & Supplemental Instruction) and Testing Services. In 2010, three academic support programs—the Math Lab, the Writing and Communication Center (Writing Lab), and University Tutoring Services—were merged into one centralized tutoring operation -- Learning Services -- located on the first floor of the Charles C. Sherrod Library. The CFAA's free services include:
- Individual tutoring for writing, math, science, general education courses, and more
- Supplemental Instruction (SI) for historically challenging courses
- Academic Coaching to help develop students' organization, time management, and study skills
- Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) to provide ongoing support, motivation, and accountability from a fellow ETSU student
Tutoring can help you learn about a subject in new ways and from different perspectives. CFAA tutors are committed to helping students discover the path to learning that is best for them. Our ultimate goal is to help you become the most successful, resourceful, and self-directed learner you can be. Our center is certified by the College Reading & Learning Association's International Tutor Training Program, so you can rest assured that your tutor will be thoroughly trained, knowledgeable, and prepared to help.
What subjects do you tutor?
Whether you are writing a paper or working on math homework, completing a chemistry lab or learning Spanish verbs, our tutors can help. We offer by-appointment, one-on-one tutoring for most 1000 or 2000 level courses, and many upper-level courses. We also offer help with study skills and academic coaching. Just log in to our schedule to check the full list of courses supported each semester.
How do I get help?
Tutoring in the CFAA is FREE to all ETSU students. All you need to do is create an account in our system and schedule an appointment using "Register" link under Individual Tutoring in the left-hand menu. You can find detailed instructions here. Registered students have access to our online schedule, searchable by course or subject, and can make appointments up to two weeks in advance, with the only limit being one session per subject per day.
Who are your tutors?
Our staff is made up of undergraduate, graduate, and professional tutors, as well as faculty volunteers, from a variety of majors and backgrounds. Our tutors have earned a B+ or better in the courses they help with, have been recommended by faculty, and participate in extensive tutoring training as well as ongoing professional development in their disciplines.
