Peer Tutoring
If the course you need assistance with is not offered in the CU Tutoring Center or your schedule will not allow you to use the center, you may request a tutor here if you are a non-athlete student  or here if  you are a student athlete. Please request a peer tutoring session at least 24 hours in advance.  Trained peer tutors are available during fall and spring semesters and on a limited basis during summer sessions.

Group Review Sessions
No registration needed!  Simply attend the group review session that is offered for your course, which will be announced in class. Group Review sessions last between one and two hours beginning with a review of materials covered in class presented by the group review leader. The remaining time is available for group work on homework assignments and individual assistance from the group review leader.  

Supplemental Instruction
Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions are regularly-scheduled, informal review sessions in which students compare notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and review for upcoming exams. The sessions are facilitated by trained “SI leaders," students who have previously performed well in the course and will attend all class lectures, take notes, and act as model students.  SI session times and location(s) will be announced during class and do not require an appointment.
