Mission

Tutoring delivers individual subject-specific academic support aimed at improving students' understanding of the material and assisting them in becoming independent learners.
 
Academic Success Center offers tutoring in most of the undergraduate subject areas. Tutoring is provided by undergraduate peer tutors who have mastery of course material and are passionate about helping their fellow students succeed. Tutoring is available on a walk-in basis Sunday through Friday (appointments are welcome). For information or to make an appointment, call (810) 762-9775 or e-mail academicsuccess@kettering.edu
