The mission of the Tribe TutorZone is to contribute to student retention and academic achievement by coordinating the services of well-qualified peer tutors who are trained 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. As of February 2015, the peer tutors of the Tribe TutorZone have conducted nearly 5,000 individual appointments. 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.
