Tutoring Schedule

The Spring 2019 Tutoring and Academic Support Schedule is posted here.

Tutoring and academic support are an important part of the assistance offered to assist in the academic success of UD students. The following schedule represents over 400 hours of assistance offered each week which is available to students at no cost. Our Core curriculum is a rigorous undertaking as it seeks to broaden the student's intellectual and moral horizons through the study of primary works of western culture and civilization. These texts can be difficult for anyone as the give us glimpses into the past while helping us shape our future pursuits, but can be especially burdensome to the novice reader. To assist with conquering this challenging material, UD has created an integrated system of support.

Keep Calm

Students are encouraged to see their professors as the subject matter expert for their course. They can receive additional assistance though through our vast tutoring program. Tutoring is offered in all Core classes as well as through several additional services which span all disciplines and majors. These services include paper writing assistance in the Writing Lab, research and reference services in the Cowan - Blakley Memorial Library and one-on-one and small group general academic assistance offered by the Academic Success office.   Please avail yourself of help as is provided so all students have opportunities to be successful in the Core and beyond.

A complete Schedule of all the Academic Support Services we offer at UD, including tutoring in Economics, Politics, Psychology, Theology, History, Philosophy, Math, Computer Science, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Business, Modern and Classical Languages, and Writing is posted here.

As you know if you’ve read even some of our first UD Reads book, "All the Light We Cannot See," it’s possible to build a radio from random, scavenged parts, as long as you can find the necessary random, scavenged parts, as Werner does in the book.
