About the Tutoring Center
Free Services for Every Mitchell Student
The Tutoring Center offers free tutoring to all current Mitchell College students in subjects across the curriculum. The goal of tutoring is to help students overcome academic challenges and lead them to autonomous or independent learning.
The Center provides personalized support for studying and learning with respect to individual learning differences. We promote independence in learning to help students overcome academic challenges and achieve greater academic performance.
NOTE: Students enrolled in Thames at Mitchell receive academic and social support through that program.
Measurable Learning Outcomes
Mitchell students who use the Tutoring Center report a very high degree of satisfaction with the services we provide. We know that because we survey them regularly on their success in achieving the following objectives:
- Articulating their needs to their tutors so they can create actionable goals
Applying study strategies they learn during tutoring session(s) to improve conceptualization and retention of the course material
Solidifying their foundational knowledge of course material

My course work feels overwhelming.
Tutors Who Are Educators
While many colleges offer peer tutoring, all of the tutors in Mitchell’s Tutoring Center are trained professionals with advanced degrees. The majority are professors who have taught courses at Mitchell and have “hands-on” experience with the curriculum. This gives our tutors the advantage of combining their subject area expertise with a wide range of support services.
Access to tutoring is just one click away! Students can sign up for sessions through the student portal through the Insight-Simplicity tool (students must use their Mitchell College account to log in).
Students simply make an appointment with the tutor who covers the subject area they want to work on. The Center is conveniently located in the center of campus on the first floor of the Duques Center.
