Tutoring for All

The Center for Student Success (CSS) offers free tutoring services designed to encourage and equip students to be successful in their courses. Students can sign up for individual tutoring sessions or visit tutoring labs.

Peer tutors are NGU students that have been carefully selected based on the recommendation of faculty members. Tutors are trained to assist students with:

  • Increasing understanding in a particular subject
  • Reviewing text or lecture material
  • Understanding assignments
  • Preparing for a test
  • General study skills, organization, time management, note-taking, and test-taking strategies

In addition to in-person options, CSS is now offering virtual tutoring for select courses.

  • Make an appointment for a virtual tutoring session through Schedulicity
  • All virtual tutoring will take place via the Microsoft Teams application
  • You can download the app on your iPhone, Android, computer, or use the web browser
  • You will login using your NGU credentials
  • Your tutor will call you through Teams at your designated time

Please review the guide from the Office of Information Technology Services for a step-by-step guide to using Microsoft Teams. Please email css@ngu.edu if you have any questions as you navigate this resource.

  • Sign-up For Individual Tutoring

    Individual tutoring sessions are one-on-one in-person or virtual tutoring opportunities that require an appointment. In accordance with the University’s COVID-19 safety precautions, masks will be required for all in-person tutoring appointments.

    Schedule a session

    Students may schedule in-person or virtual appointments with a peer tutor for individual help by visiting our appointment site, Schedulicity, and following the steps below:

    1. Visit Schedulicity
    2. Find the course/subject for which you would like tutoring (you will select the in-person or virtual option here)
    3. Click the blue “Add to Visit” box
    4. Choose a tutor
    5. Choose a day and time the tutor is available
    6. Confirm and create your account
    7. Once you have completed the appointment request, the tutor will be notified of your request and will reach out to you to confirm the location of your meeting

    If you do not see your course subject listed, send a request for a tutor to Brynna Bower via email at css@ngu.edu. There may not be a virtual tutoring option for every course; if you prefer virtual tutoring where one is not offered, contact Brynna to make a request. 

  • Immersive Tutoring Labs

    Tutoring labs offer walk-in sessions, but appointments are strongly encouraged to secure your tutor’s availability. Students will be able to meet with peer tutors in a group setting at specific times every week. You will find lab tutors available on Schedulicity under the appropriate lab. Tutoring labs and locations below:
