Fall 2019 Tutoring Schedule

Professional Math and Writing Tutoring

CASA Math and Writing tutors are available all hours CASA is open.  Math tutoring operates on a walk-in basis, meaning no appointment is necessary.  Math tutors often work with several students at the same time for different math courses, so one-on-one tutoring may not be available. Students wishing to work with a math tutor should come prepared with specific questions from lecture or homework.  

CASA Writing tutors work one-on-one with students by appointment and can assist with papers from any discipline.  Students are expected to come prepared for a writing appointment with a copy of the assignment, the written paper, and any research, books, or outside components utilized for the assignment.  All writing tutoring sessions are 30 minutes; students are limited to one 30-minute session per day.  

Subject Tutors

Subject tutors are students of junior or senior standing who are recommended by faculty to be tutors.  Subject tutors are available 4-10 hours a week  for many areas including: accounting, biology, chemistry, computer science,  earth science and physics,  food and nutrition, business and economics, geography, history, logic, philosophy, research methods/SPSS for sociology and psychology, Spanish. 

CASA works with Academic Departments to secure tutors based on need.  Students looking to request a tutor for an area not currently supported should contact Ally Chisholm ( or Dr. LaDonna Bridges (
