Drop-In Tutoring & Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Drop-in tutoring and SI will be available online via Zoom for the entire Fall 2021 semester. The Business Student Success Center (Glenn-202) will be open for Business student use. 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.

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.
