If you find yourself struggling in a course this semester, and are seeking extra help, follow these recommendations.
Having Trouble with Course Materials
Students having trouble with their course material should seek out the help of their professor first. Professors are available before and after class, and have posted office hours, which are usually listed on the syllabus. When you meet with your professor (we recommend actually scheduling a meeting with him/her) be as specific as possible when communicating your struggles with the course material. Your professor will be better able to help you, if he/she knows exactly what part(s) of the material you need help with.
Help with Writing Assignments
If you are looking for help with a writing assignment, visit the Writing Center. The Writing Center is located in Foley Library. Visit their website for hours and other helpful resources.
Help with Mathematics Courses
The Mathematics Lab, located in Herak 224, assists students with their math courses. Their schedule varies within and between semesters. Hours are posted in the Herak Building on the lab door and in the Department Chair's office, Herak 227A.
Some departments at Gonzaga offer free group and/or individual tutoring sessions. For a comprehensive list, click here. This information is updated each semester.
If no tutor is available for the course you have requested through the Tutoring for Academic Success Program, ask your professor for a list of available tutors. These tutors are privately arranged; most charge a fee. Your professor should have contact information for each tutor. If your professor does not have a list of available tutors, go to the Department Chair. Department Chairs rotate each academic year. Ask your professor or Dean's Office for the current Department Chair of the course for which you need tutoring.
