CH2M STEM Tutoring Center

Knowledge and Skills

The CH2M STEM Tutoring Center provides a space for students to meet with peer tutors, get feedback on assignments, schedule group study sessions, and work with faculty outside the classroom.

Because the CH2M STEM Tutoring Center is located on the second floor of the Max E. Benitz Library, students have ready access to research material – both print and online – and easy contact with library professionals who can answer questions and identify additional resources.

Whether you need a quiet study space to focus on your reading or a collaborative environment to solve problems with your classmates, the CH2M STEM Tutoring Center is an ideal place for scholarship.

Request a Tutor

Request a Tutor
You can request a tutor if you do not see a time in the CH2M Tutoring Center schedule that fits your needs. To request a tutor, complete the Request Form. We will do our best to accommodate your request, though it is not guaranteed. Either way, Academic Advising will email your WSU account within 2-3 business days of your request.

We will notify you by emailing your WSU email account whether we are able to assign a tutor to you. If we are able to assign you a tutor, we will include an attached Tutor Request Contract in the confirmation email. Please sign this contract and bring it with you to your tutor session and submit to your tutor. Without this signed contract we will be unable to facilitate your tutor session.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Tutor Sessions
Tutor sessions will be scheduled for a minimum of one half hour blocks, unless otherwise specified on the request form. It is up to you and your assigned tutor whether you utilize the entire time. If you need additional time beyond the scheduled time frame, you will need to submit another request form.

Sessions are required to be held on campus and during times the campus is open (7am to 10pm). Tutors will not meet with students for off campus.

Late Policy
Arrive on time. Your time and the tutor’s time are both equally valuable. Your appointment is scheduled for the specified time listed on the Tutor Request Form. If you need additional time beyond the specified time above, please complete a new request form.

If you expect you will be late, please email the tutor prior to your appointment. You would have to agree to communicate with the assigned tutor in other ways other than email. Information was emailed to your WSU email.

No Show Policy
Two no-shows in one semester will result in you losing the privilege to be able to request a tutor for the remainder of the semester. You may still utilize the tutoring center during scheduled tutoring hours.

Cancellation Policy
If you are not able to attend your tutoring session, you are required to notify the Academic Advising Center 24 hours from your appointment. You can reach the Advising Center at tricities.advising@wsu.edu or call 509-372-7035.

Failing to notify the Academic Advising Center will result in losing the privilege to request tutors for the semester. You may still utilize the tutoring center during scheduled tutoring hours.
