Collegiate Tutoring is a local tutoring service that is incredibly simple for your student to sign up for. They simply fill out an intake form and within the next 24 hours, they will hear from their support team with more information and an invitation to join their campus account. During the session, your student will discuss study strategies, tips for tests and practice homework problems.
Most professors offer “SI sessions” which are student-instructed reviews of the course material held outside of class time. They are totally optional, but a great resource to utilize. Your student has the opportunity to ask questions to teacher assistants in a small setting and establish connections with classmates. SI sessions are definitely a huge reason why I was able to get through Bio 160 freshman year! Advise your student to look for more information about these sessions on their syllabuses or shoot their professor an e-mail about it.
Also, The Center for Student Success and First-Year Experience has a tutoring resource and help session page on their website. It includes all majors offered at Ole Miss and where to go for additional help or tutoring. You can see the list here.
