Tutoring for Siena Students
Coordinator of Tutoring Services: Holly Cheverton
We do not provide Tutoring for any non-Siena students,
nor do we hire tutors from off campus
Tutoring Services are available to all students currently registered at Siena College. The office is located in Siena Hall 215. Tutoring Services provides Group and Individual Peer Tutoring during both the Fall and Spring semesters. Summer tutoring is available by special arrangement only.
While most students view tutoring as a mechanism for "fixing" difficult coursework, Tutoring Services can be much more proactive in a student’s academic success. Participating in a Group Tutoring Session can clarify formerly difficult concepts, provide additional study time and, connect students with study partners. When used this way, Tutoring enhances academic performance and improves success rather than just ‘fixing’ problems. Students, therefore, are encouraged to use Tutoring Services’ Group Sessions often.
The times and locations of the Tutoring Sessions may change during the semester. Please check back with this schedule or contact the Tutoring Coordinator at email@example.com if you have any questions.
will resume again in the Fall
Thanks to the Tutors for another great semester!!

Group Tutoring sessions are usually available for introductory courses in such subject areas as Science, Math, Accounting, Statistics and Quantitative Business Analysis. Students may ‘drop-in’ for these sessions where several students receive academic support for a particular subject. These sessions are led by a Peer Tutors who have completed the course with exceptional achievement and have been recommended by a faculty member. All Tutors receive training prior to working as a tutor.
We ask students to attend two Group Tutoring Sessions, if Group Sessions are available, before requesting Individual Tutoring. Group Tutoring Sessions usually provide the assistance students need, especially since students usually receive individual attention during the Group Sessions.
Students may attend any or all of the Group Tutoring Sessions offered. This service is free to all currently registered students at Siena College, i.e. part-time or full-time, matriculated or non-degree.
Individual Peer Tutoring
To receive an Individual Peer Tutor, students need to fill out a Tutor Request Form: download a copy here, or pick one up in Siena Hall 215. Students must attend at least two Group Tutoring Sessions before requesting an Individual Tutor. Email completed forms to email@example.com or drop them off at Siena Hall 215.
After submitting a Tutor Request Form, we will do our best to find an Individual Tutor for courses. Because we have Peer Individual Tutors, it is not always possible to find a Tutor who is qualified to provide assistance in all subjects, however The Office of Tutoring Services will make every effort to accomadate students in need. When an Individual Tutor is available, the student in need will be provided with information regarding Tutoring via their Siena College email account. Conferences with the Tutoring Coordinator are also available. It is the student’s responsibility to make the arrangements (time and place) for the weekly tutoring session.
Request a tutor early!! Although you students can request a tutor at any time in the semester, tutoring is most effective if you begin early. Don't wait until you develop significant problems!
