Introduction

In cooperation with the Academic Tutoring Center located in the Academic Success Center (room D204) the Philosophy Department tries to provide tutorial assistance for students in Symbolic Logic (i.e., PHIL& 120, formerly PHIL& 106, Introduction to Logic), and to a limited extent, for students in Critical Thinking (i.e., PHIL& 115). Tutors are available when students have successfully completed a logic class and wish to assist others. The tutor can also help in writing philosophy papers for other philosophy classes. The tutoring schedule will also be available from your philosophy instructors, who can also provide more information on tutoring for your course. The tutorials are group tutorials. Topics are divided among the Logic class sections by demand. This means that any tutorial session may deal with a variety of topics depending on course content in individual sections. Students may seek help in doing problem sets, test preparation, general concepts, etc. These tutorial sessions are available free to any Logic or philosophy student. In addition to the free sessions listed in the Phil 115 & 120 Schedule link, those students who are receiving a grade of C-, D, or F may sign up in D204 for two hours of college-paid tutoring per week. Individual tutoring must be arranged in advance with the tutor and is subject to the tutor’s availability. There is a Tutor Request Form that must be filled out by the student and signed by the instructor before students are able to make use of this tutorial opportunity.  For further information click on the Individual Tutoring link. Students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this service. Students are also strongly encouraged to form study groups.
