What services are provided during summer?

  • SMALL GROUP TUTORING:

Small Group Tutoring sessions during summer are limited to 10 students. Select link here for more information about our Small Group Tutoring program.

  • WRITING TUTORING:

One on one appointments will be available on Slug Success during summer. Select link here for more information about our writing tutoring service. 

To Sign up:

  1. Sign in to the Slug Success system and follow these instructions.
  2. Sign up for a session as soon as Slug Success opens. Sessions fill up quickly, sign up early to secure yourself a spot! For Summer, sessions will be set to repeat for the entire Summer Session. Students to not need to sign themselves up for each week’s session(s).
  3. Come prepared to your tutoring session and be ready to participate with other students in your group.

“Early and often” priority:

Priority will be given to students who have attended their sessions early and often. Therefore, students who add themselves to a session later in the quarter (when they have not been attending regularly) may be dropped if the session size grows past 10 students. Tutors will be responsible for prioritizing students who committed early in the quarter and will try to accommodate students who want to join their sessions later on in the quarter.

Waitlist Requests:

Due to our limited tutor staff during the summer, students will not be able to submit waitlist requests on Slug Success. If a course is not on the list of supported for Summer 2018 or if students cannot attend any of the available sessions posted, LSS will not be able to support your course or add additional session times.

Sessions will be set to repeat:

Summer 2018, students using Slug Success to schedule Small Group Tutoring will be signed up for each week's session after they initially sign up. To make writing appointments recurring students must contact LSS at lss@ucsc.edu or (831) 459-4333 and request that their appointment repeat for the entire summer session. 

Drop Policy:

Tutoring is a valuable resource that many students use throughout their time at UCSC. To make sure all students have access to tutoring, Learning Support Services does have a student drop policy. All undergraduate students are allowed one excused absence as long as they give their tutor 24 hours notice. If a student does not show up to a session, and has not communicated with their tutor, the student will be dropped from the session scheduled.
