- About Plattsburgh
Our partnership with SUNY College at Plattsburgh faculty is essential to our department's success and growth. Faculty members refer students to our services, recommend students to become tutors, and provide essential feedback regarding our academic support services by contacting our office.
|Faculty Tutor Recommendation Form (Please download, complete, and forward to the Learning Center).||Faculty Tutor Recommendation Form|
If you think one of your former students would be a good tutor, please discuss the possibility with the student and if he or she is willing, please refer them to the Learning Center.
Please note: The Learning Center wants to employ as many tutors as we can. However, some classes are of higher demand. Thus, we recruit tutors in those subject areas first. If you recommend your student to tutor in anthropology (one of our lower demand areas), we cannot guarantee there would be a need at that particular time. However, if that same student can also assist in MAT 161 (our highest demand course), then the student will be available to tutor both courses. It is likely the student will be doing most of his/her tutoring sessions for MAT 161. With the exception of high demand classes, we typically stop recruiting tutors after the 4th week of the semester.
Also, when we do not have tutors for certain courses, some faculty have found it helpful to have a teaching assistant available. The Learning Center is a shared space, but we encourage these teaching assistants and students to use our space for conferencing.
We appreciate your recommendation of our services to your students. There are many ways to recommend the Learning Center to your students. Some professors include our contact information in their syllabi. Others invite us into the class to present an introduction to our services. And many find referring individual students to the Learning Center equally valuable.
We recognize that your class time is a precious commodity, but inviting a representative from the Learning Center may be an excellent means of informing your students about campus resources.
