The Academic Strategy Peer Tutoring (ASPT) program is specifically designed to help new students navigate the transition from high school to college. Academic Strategy Peer Tutors serve as academic mentors and role models and work with students throughout the semester to develop academic skills including: study skills, time management strategies, note taking skills, and test taking strategies.

While the ASPT program largely supports first-year students, any student can choose to work with an ASPT. 

Academic Strategy Peer Tutoring is available during the fall and spring semester. Students needing assistance over the summer should email academicsupport@framingham.edu.

Framingham State has partnered with ThinkingStorm to provide free online tutoring to our students.  ThinkingStorm is open every day for online tutoring, which includes on-demand, appointment-based, and submission-based support. To receive tutoring help, simply access online tutoring through the link on your Framingham State University Canvas page. You can then follow the directions on-screen to connect with a live tutor, submit a document to the online Writing Center, or schedule a virtual tutoring appointment.

You may access ThinkingStorm on Canvas under "Account", or on the left-side tool bar within a course.  

Please email academicsupport@framingham.edu if you have questions. 

Please check back in the fall for information about Math Emporium.

Tutoring is an outstanding way for students to become involved in the Framingham State community.  Any student interested in becoming a subject tutor or an Academic Strategy Peer Tutor (ASPT) should fill out the tutoring application.  Excellent academic standing, a faculty recommendation, and an interview are required.
