At the LRC, we do tutoring a bit differently. While traditional tutoring has always been a crucial piece to the success of students, we thought the process could use some rejuvenation. Now, we’re putting extra emphasis on peer-to-peer tutoring.
The foundation of higher education is peer learning – learning through interaction, collaboration, and discussion with other students. That’s why we’ve decided to leverage peer learning with technology and increase accessibility to foster maximum student engagement.
Academic Guides are incredibly important to this process, acting as facilitators that provide structure and direction. But equally important are the peer-tutors who not only promote collaboration, but also enrich and expand their own knowledge along the way.
CU Denver students have a unique opportunity to benefit from interacting with our diverse student population. Now, that opportunity has been expanded. Contact us today to see how the LRC can support you through effective and engaging peer-to-peer support.
Check in at the Learning Hub front desk, or register when signing onto Zoom for an Online Appointment. Show up at any time during the open session.
Academic Guide will lead a review of the difficult concepts, including a chance for students to practice with material. Students will meet classmates and work together in interactive components.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is offered for courses like Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and other traditionally difficult courses. With SI, you maximize your study time, get to know your classmates, and have fun! Statistics show that students who regularly attend (at least one a week) SI sessions perform better in class.
Has it been awhile since you took chemistry? Are your math skills a little rusty? Don't worry, most people struggle to remember everything about a subject when they've been out of practice. But thanks to the LRC, there's no need to struggle. Intense Preparation (I-Prep) can get you up to speed and ready to jump back in before the semester starts.
The Resources for Immigrant Students and English Language Learners (RISE) program is an academic and social support program that has a goal to support immigrant and English Language Learners at CU Denver by providing them with one-on-one meetings in which they can talk about their academic needs.
