Peer Tutoring

Maryville University’s Division of Student Success provides trained and carefully selected tutors free of charge to assist students who need help with specific subjects, assignments or projects. Tutors are not only knowledgeable in their subject areas, but they are also knowledgeable in study skills, time management and test taking strategies.

Although Peer Tutoring is fully-staffed and run by students for students, the tutors are trained and guided by Sam Gavic, a Life Coach in the Division for Student Success.

Writing Studio

Housed in the Center for Academic Success and Life Coaching and staffed by screened and trained undergraduates, the Maryville University Writing Studio can help students to become better writers in any subject or major. Writing tutors offer individualized learning sessions for specific projects or help in general, in all aspects of writing: generating ideas and planning a draft, citing sources and avoiding plagiarism, and revising for coherence, concision and clarity. Students may visit on their own or on the recommendation of an instructor. The Writing Studio is also a speaking center, offering tutorials for in-class presentations or for ESL students in conversational English.
