About LEAD Tutoring

How do LEAD tutoring sessions work?

Attendance is voluntary so students may choose to go to sessions whenever they wish. Most of our semester data collections indicate that students who go often or to all sessions tend to perform better in the course. LEAD Tutoring is provided for all students who want to improve their understanding of course material and their grades. Studies show that students who attend this form of tutoring regularly can earn up to a letter grade higher than those who choose not to attend.

Attend LEAD Chemistry Tutoring to get together with your classmates and compare notes, discuss important concepts, develop strategies for studying the subject, and test yourself before the professor does. If you attend LEAD Tutoring sessions regularly, you will gain a better understanding of the course content, improve your study skills, meet new people and possibly improve your grade. For more detailed course information, refer to the ASULearn site dedicated to the Chemistry course section that you are enrolled in. All LEAD tutoring course sections will be posted here as soon as all information is available and room assignments are verified. It is anticipated that new sections will continue to be added over the first few weeks of classes as new tutors are hired and trained.

Who can be a LEAD tutor?

Only students who have enrolled in and have earned an A in the course are hired to be LEAD Tutors. This student attends class and takes notes just like you for the entire semester. After each lecture, the LEAD Tutor will create a handout that will be discussed during the 1.5 hour interactive study sessions that are held 2-3 times a week. Tutors may also hold a two hour test review before each exam.
