Tutoring Services

Molloy University academic tutoring services prepares you for academic success. It provides you with support in two specific ways. Remediation is available when you are below a “C” average in your major course of study and supplemental help is provided when you are passing a course but require reinforcement or clarification in particular aspects of the course work. The tutoring program will assist you – free of charge – in achieving your academic potential in mathematics, science, and modern languages. Assistance in other disciplines is provided according to your individual eligibility.

Assistance and support are provided in a nurturing environment, founded in the belief that you can reach your full academic potential at Molloy University. We are accessible to every student with a need for academic encouragement and support. We will match you with a tutor trained to help you succeed. Our tutors are:

  • Professionals, active or semi-retired teachers or professional certified in the field in which they tutor
  • Graduates, who have their graduate/undergraduate degree
  • Molloy University peers who are students knowledgeable in the subject area

Program Tutees
Tutees fall into two categories; namely, those who need the following kinds of academic assistance:

  • Improvement: Students failing a course or below "C" in a major field
  • Supplemental: Students passing a course but in need of reinforcement or clarification in particular aspects of the course work

Faculty may refer students and are encouraged to do so early in the semester, especially for those students in need of academic help.

Become at Tutor
You can also join the tutoring program as an academic tutor. Tutors are compensated for assisting other students who are having difficulty with their coursework. Tutors create their own tutoring schedule, reinforce their own understanding of the material, enhance their communication and social skills and further develop planning, organizational and managerial skills.
