We still provide academic coaching during finals week, but only with the Grads or Learning Specialists. No academic coaching is available from our Peer Academic Coaches because they are students and I want to make sure they have time to complete their own work and prepare for their own exams.


I try to encourage my staff to assist students with developing a finals week study plan in advance so that they do not need our assistance that week.


Very few students some in and those that do are usually the ones who have not studied for the past several weeks. In that case we will do some informal advising, help the student prioritize study tasks, and refer them to other resources, if needed.

Hi Loren,

 

I do have my subject tutoring and writing center open during finals.  But as exams take happen during the final exam week, I then pare down whatís offered for tutoring so that by the end itís just one or two subjects and just a handful of tutors left.

 

Best,

 

John Paul

Subject: Keeping Tutoring Center Open During Finals Week?

 

Greetings!

 

Every semester our tutoring center struggles with whether to remain open during finals week.

 

Our data shows that very few students (under 20) use our center during finals, but we always close the writing center.

 

Do any of you keep your tutoring centers open during this week (tutoring for math, science, and humanities)? If so (or not), would you be willing to share your rationale?

 

Thank you so much!

 

Loren
