What Tutoring Looks Like at Penn State New Kensington

We provide FREE tutoring services in two formats: by drop-in and by appointment.  We offer both one-to-one and group tutoring sessions depending on a student's preference.  Our services cover a wide variety of courses and subjects, including writing, math, biology, chemistry, physics, and languages just to name a few.  Our tutors are PSNK students whose goal is to help their fellow PSNK'ers reach their academic goals.  We believe that all students benefit from using our tutoring services, and we strive to make our tutoring sessions productive, relaxed, and hopefully a little fun too.

If you have questions about our tutoring services, please email our tutoring coordinator, Adam Robinson, at axr500@psu.edu.

How Drop-in Tutoring Works

  1. See the drop-in tutoring schedule (below) for hours, location, and subject. 
  2. No appointment is necessary. 
  3. Please bring your class materials and your questions to share with the tutor.

How Appointment Based Tutoring Works

  1. You request an appointment by completing our tutoring request form.  We encourage you to request help for any course.  If we do not have a tutor for the course, we will do our best to find one.
  2. We respond with an appointment date, time, and location.
  3. You confirm the appointment.
  4. Please bring your class materials and your questions to share with the tutor.

Why Tutoring is Beneficial to All Students

All students benefit from tutoring.  Our tutors can certainly help when you are struggling with a course.  However, we encourage you to make working with a tutor a routine part of your semester even when you are happy with how you are performing in your courses.  Tutoring can add variety to your study time, keep you on the right track, and strengthen your performance.  Plus, highly effective people use all resources that are available to them, so they can do their best work.  And our tutors benefit from the experience too because they strengthen their knowledge and skills through teaching others.
