There are three full-time math instructors in the ACE Center.
There are also three or four (depending on their availability) other part-time degreed instructors who tutor at various times.
In addition, peer tutors (students who have done particularly well in their math courses and have been referred to us by the Math Department) also work with students.
The purpose of math tutoring in the ACE Tutoring Center is to assist students in their learning. It is meant to supplement class time and instructor office hours.
There are four full-time and one part-time learning specialists who assist students with writing.
There are no peer English tutors. The ACE Tutoring Center is a resource for students. ACE instructors will give suggestions and point out prevalent grammatical errors. Students will be guided to make their own corrections and changes. The quality of final papers is determined by the students' own abilities and efforts.
Because of limited staff, limited space and growing numbers of students, the ACE Tutoring Center asks that instructors no longer require entire classes to bring their papers to the English tutors before handing them in. Instead, instructors are encouraged to suggest that only those students with the most obvious writing problems come to us for help.
The ACE Tutoring Center has one full-time science learning specialist and one part-time.
The learning specialists can help students in the sciences, including anatomy and physiology, biology and chemistry.
Foreign language tutoring in French and Spanish is also available. For tutor information, call 636-922-8444.
We have a computer specialist that can be contacted to install software for your classes.
There is always at least one lab assistant available to assist students in the lab. Computer tutoring is also available on a limited basis. To reserve part of the computer lab for your class, call 636-922-8444.
There are three First Alert learning specialists.
The First Alert Program differs from the tutoring programs, which help students at any time in the semester with their current work. It is designed to help students who lack the essential prerequisites to succeed in their current course work, and who need more time and attention than their teachers can devote to them to solve their problems. The earlier in the semester the student is referred to the program, the better. In general, a referral after midterm is one made too late.
First Alert instructors will be happy to visit classrooms to explain how First Alert works. Brochures explaining First Alert are also available to give to students.
For questions about First Alert or to request brochures, contact Lindy (ext. 8549) or Karen (ext. 8643).
We do not give make-up tests to students in the ACE Tutoring Center. This is a service offered by the Assessment Center.
