Residential Studying and Tutoring (RST)

You are here

The aim of the Residential Studying & Tutoring program (RST) is to help promote effective study habits and to bring academic support for some of the University's most challenging and demanding courses into the residence halls.  The RST program, developed jointly by the Center for Academic Success and the Office of Residence Life in 2012, was designed to provide students with the opportunity to connect with other residents, study with peers, and seek the help of a knowledgeable tutor.  The Residential Tutoring schedule will be posted by Monday, August 29th .    

Residential tutoring is available for 35 minute individual appointments.  Sign up for your appointment on Retain.

Tutoring will begin on Monday, September 5th and end on Friday, December 2nd.

Tips for a successful Residential tutoring session:
  • Do not wait until the week of your exam to visit the Center - we cannot stress this enough!
  • Prepare for your tutoring session. Read your textbook, review notes, attempt the homework problems, and don't forget to bring your notes and book to the session!
  • Come with a specific question or goal for the tutoring session. What do you want to accomplish? Be sure to communicate your goal to your tutor.
  • Not working for you? Try a different time or a different tutor... If it's still not working, contact our Center director, Kara Uhrich, at, to discuss other options for tutoring in this class!
