The TRIO Scholars Program offers free tutoring for TRIO students to help them with the challenging coursework at NYU Tandon School of Engineering. We help students understand the coursework, increase their confidence in academic subjects, and help them learn independently.
Tutoring is the cornerstone of the TRIO project and critical to the academic success of our students. We offer tutoring in freshman and sophomorelevel math, science, and computer science courses as well as some upperlevel courses.
Individualized Tutoring
Students will meet on a 1to1 basis with a tutor in the subject(s) they need help with each week for the entire semester. Tutors help students with homework, address their individual difficulties, and help them prepare for exams.
SmallGroup Tutoring
We also offer smallgroup tutoring for selected upperlevel courses. Smallgroup tutoring consists of 2 to 3 students who meet with their tutor weekly for the entire semester. Tutors focus on helping students master the subject matter by addressing their weaknesses in the subject and building on individual strengths.
Supplemental Instruction
For additional support, students attending selected courses have the option to meet as a group with a tutor for supplemental instruction. On a weekly basis, the tutor will lead a review session following the class syllabus, answer students’ questions, and go over homework assignments. These sessions provide TRIO students with an excellent opportunity to master the subject matter by strengthening their knowledge of basic concepts.
TRIO DropIn Clinic Hours
During specific hours, our Team Leaders (head tutors from a given subject area) are available to meet with students and answer subject specific questions. Students can utilize this service on an asneeded basis in addition to their regularly scheduled tutoring sessions. Students do not have to receive tutoring in a given subject area in order to utilize the Team Leader Clinic Hours.
