MISSION: The tutoring services at Buffalo State are committed to working with faculty to ensure the intellectual growth of Buffalo State's diverse student body through excellence in tutoring.
The long-term goal of Buffalo State tutors is to enhance student academic success, retention and graduation by applying the best practices of student learning theory and addressing student learning needs. This is largely done by cultivating the tutee’s academic independence.
Tutors are expected to think of their work as tutoring the individual in the learning process, helping the tutee move towards academic independence during each session, rather than just tutoring a subject. The tutor will ask questions that help tutees foster critical thinking, metacognitive development, and academic and personal success.
The learning center is a place where students and students’ needs come first.
