Tutoring Services at Woodbury University

The Math, Science & Subject Tutoring Center

The Math, Science & Subject Tutoring Center offers free peer tutoring to all Woodbury students. Every tutor has expertise in MATH 049 and 149, and most can tutor in MATH 220, 249, and 251 and several science courses. As a team, their expertise covers an average of 30 courses per semester, in a wide variety of subjects, as well as specialized computer programs. Our appointment scheduler lists each tutor’s specialties for that semester. If you need assistance in a course that is not listed, contact Laurel DiGangi, coordinator of tutoring services at laurel.digangi@woodbury.edu. We accept drop-ins, but making an appointment guarantees that you will see the tutor you need.

The Writing Center

The Writing Center offers free peer tutoring services at all stages of the writing process, including brainstorming, developing and refining thesis statements, synthesizing sources, using correct APA and MLA documentation, editing, and proofreading. Tutors help with conventional papers, multi-modal and digital projects, and presentations for classes as well as other professional writing documents, such as resumes and application letters. You may work one-on-one, in-person with a tutor, or submit your essay to our website for online feedback. We accept drop-ins, but making an appointment guarantees that you will see the tutor you need.
