TUTORING SERVICES
Through the writing, math and engineering tutor centers, AUD provides valuable and complementary services for members of its community. Hours of operation are published at the beginning of every academic term.
AUD offers the free services of a Writing Center where AUD students can receive one-to-one assistance on writing tasks. Students can receive assistance on assignments at various stages of the process of completion. Assistance is provided by full-time instructors on writing tasks in any discipline, with a focus on developing overall academic writing skills. In addition, there are two computers available in the Center, for students to work on their writing assignments in a focused environment.  For students who want to improve a particular skill, such as thesis development, there will be online tutorials.

Tutors in the Writing Center Will
  • seek to improve the writer as well as the writing
  • help students improve their proofreading skills
  • give suggestions to strengthen writing
  • encourage the student to do most of the talking during a tutorial session
  • encourage practice and experimentation 
Tutors in the Writing Center Will Not
  • proofread or edit undergraduate students’ writing
  • impose ideas on students
  • guarantee a good grade on students’ papers
  • cross the line between assisting students’ development of their writing abilities and “collaborating” with students on a specific piece of writing
The Speaking Skills Center (SSC) welcomes any student to walk in and work one-to-one with a peer tutor on their oral communication skills. Students choose what they want to improve on and the tutor guides them through exercises, discussions, or practicing their full presentation for feedback. The SSC remedies various student issues (e.g. anxiety) while aiding faculty (e.g. instructional assistance). Tutors are overseen by AUD’s Professor of Oral Rhetoric, and they are trained with an inventory of methods to assist students.
The Math Tutor Center provides students enrolled in mathematics courses (including Math 090, 100, 101, 200, 110, 210, and 220) the opportunity to receive assistance in their efforts to be successful in these courses.

The Center operates as a walk-in service. There is no need to make an appointment. The tutors who staff the Center include students who have demonstrated an excellent ability to understand mathematics as well as an ability to help others understand.

Additionally, there are several full-time and adjunct faculty members who also help to staff the Center. Students are encouraged to utilize the Center as often as needed. The Center operates throughout the semester (except for the first week of classes and the week of final exams) and is open Sunday through Thursday.)
