Large Group Tutoring

What is Large Group Tutoring?

Large Group Tutoring is out-of-class practice session that provides a space for students to work together on practice problems, go over key concepts as a group, prepare for exams collaboratively, and build community! In Large Group Tutoring, students will learn by participating in activities (yes, activities!), talking to other students, and build the skills they need to be successful in their class. tutoring sessions are led by other UCSC undergraduate students (Tutors) who took the class and did well in it.

Tutoring sessions do not have a weekly commitment (you don’t have to sign-up), students can attend large group tutoring as many times as they want per week. Large Group Tutoring sessions have a max capacity of 15 students. Large Group Tutoring mostly supports gateway courses (the foundational courses students need to declare majors) and core courses (the upper-division courses students need to graduate in their majors) in STEM and some Social Science disciplines.
