The mission of the Tribe TutorZone is threefold: to contribute to student retention and academic achievement, to coordinate the services of well-qualified and trained peer tutors, and to assist students with the development of independent learning skills.
In September 2011, the Tribe TutorZone was established as a self-sustaining program by the Assistant Dean of Students with the valuable assistance of a graduate intern and numerous faculty who contributed their time and expertise to support the project. Typically, the peer tutors of the Tribe TutorZone conduct over 3,500 individual appointments annually. The TutorZone is a resource that is both respected and recommended by faculty and students alike.
The Tribe TutorZone is certified as an International Tutor Training Program by the College Reading & Learning Association.
The Earl Gregg Swem Library has generously provided a space for the Tribe TutorZone to call home. The TutorZone is located on the first floor of Swem, in front of the Writing Resources Center.
