Drop-In Tutoring & Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Beginning September 1st, drop-in tutoring and SI will be available online via Zoom. All Chico State students have Zoom accounts via your portal. The Accessing Zoom through Bb Learn (Students) document (Google Doc) is a good resource if you are not familiar with Zoom video conferencing.

Subject support documents have also been created for all of the subjects with tutoring available where students can post questions for the Tutor or SI Leaders. These documents also include contact information, schedules, and Zoom meeting links. Links for each subject support document are available below. Note: you must be signed in with your wildcat mail account (@mail.csuchico.edu) to access these google docs

IMPORTANT: When meeting with a Tutor or SI Leader on zoom, please log your session using the linked google form.

Additional Tutoring & Support Services

Please remember, due to the rapid pace in which Universities were closed across the state, this is a new system of support delivery. There will likely be minor glitches throughout the initial implementation. We encourage you to please reach out to your tutor, business advising (businessadvisor@csuchico.edu), or the BSSC coordinator (wcharkness@csuchico.edu) if you experience difficulty accessing these virtual services. We are all learning this together and our top priority remains to provide support to our students through unprecedented times. 

About Business Tutoring Services

Based on multiple grants and support from the campus Student Learning Center, student tutors are available in accounting; finance; supply chain management; management information systems; and business writing. Their schedules are posted on the bulletin board across from the Business Student Success Center in Glenn Hall 202, where all tutoring occurs. 

Tutors provide assistance outside the classroom at no cost to our students. Difficult subjects often require hands-on help, and tutors are ready to offer guidance by asking questions that improve students’ problem-solving skills. Tutors do not do homework for students; rather they help students understand difficult concepts, theories, or operations. Our collaboration with the campus Student Learning Center has provided professional training for our tutors and many insights on the entire tutoring process.

Our drop-in tutoring format means students do not have to make an appointment which makes it easy for students to seek tutoring help when they need it. Students can visit Glenn 202, the COB Learning Community page in Blackboard, or view multiple monitors in Glenn Hall to find tutors’ schedules. Students can then “drop-in” for as little or as much help as they need.

The Business Student Success Center has a dozen tutors that have worked with hundreds of students. Students have reported that they loved the sense of connection with other students in their major, and the tutoring really helped. A great deal of informal networking and collaboration happens in the center. Last year we had comments from several instructors who noticed the difference in quiz scores and other assignments. Come by the Business Student Success Center and see if we can do anything to help you succeed – Glenn 202 is your source for success.
