Northwest Missouri State University


FREE tutoring is available in the relaxed environment at the Talent Development Center232 Owens Library. Our tutors are excellent students who earned As or Bs in the classes that they tutor. They also attend weekly professional development sessions to improve their tutoring skills. You can find a tutor for almost all of the general education courses and every effort will be made to find a tutor for an upper-level (300/400) course if needed.

Students are encouraged to make an appointment with a tutor as soon as they feel lost or confused in a course. It is best to get help BEFORE you fall behind in a class.

Tutoring sessions incorporate university-level study skills strategies, targeted test-taking advice, and content review of general studies and foundation-level courses in many majors. Tutoring sessions are designed to meet every individual's needs.

To schedule an appointment with one of our TDC tutors, feel free to:

We will make every effort to support our fellow Bearcats.
