Course Embedded Tutors (CET)- the purpose of this program is to increase pass rates and retention for historically high fail courses and to help students achieve their educational goals. This program attaches a highly skilled tutor to a specific course and then they are the in-class support for the students.  The CET attends lecture, takes notes, assists with group work, and provides weekly break-out sessions to provide further clarification of concepts and quiz/test reviews. 

Currently, CETs are available for the following disciplines and courses:

  • MATH M01, M03, M05 (Summer sessions: MATH M06, M07, M16A, M25A, M25C)
