Tutoring and Support Services

At the Center, you'll find many resources that will enhance your learning across the curriculum. You may work with trained writing and content tutors, attend informal workshops, meet with a learning specialist, and access the practical tips in the Study Skills Toolbox.

Hours: Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Tutoring: Peer Writing and Content

We offer both writing and content tutors for individual and group sessions to support learning in all classes. Our tutoring program has been certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA), and more than 50 peer tutors receive ongoing training and support.

Peer writing tutors hold drop-in hours 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. Sunday–Thursday in the Center.

Peer content tutors are hired for non-quantitative courses(primarily language and biology) by appointment. Students may receive one hour of tutoring per week for each subject requested. To request a tutor, follow this LINK and fill out the Jacobson Center Tutor Request Form and send to jactutor@smith.edu. For general questions regarding content tutoring, please email Kelly Vogel, Tutoring Services Coordinator: kvogel@smith.edu.
