Tutoring

All tutoring is free of charge for Aurora University students. We accept walk-ins, but if you need a tutoring session prior to an exam or a before a paper is due, we recommend that you make an appointment to ensure that a tutor is available. You can schedule one-time sessions for help on a specific project or weekly sessions for ongoing help with a class or skill.  

Contact us at 630-844-5520 to schedule your appointment.

Professional Tutoring

All of our professional tutors hold graduate degrees, and many have taught college-level courses. We provide:

  • Writing assistance, including paper organization, topic development, grammar, and mechanics, documentation methods, thesis statements, conclusions, accurate summary and paraphrase and style. We will work one-on-one with you to polish your papers, but we are not an editing and proofreading service.
  • Math assistance.
  • Time management, study skills and test-taking strategies.

Peer tutoring

A peer tutor is a current AU student who has successfully completed the same class that you're taking.  All peer tutors are recommended by professors and approved by the director of the Academic Support Center. We pay the peer tutor--you do not.  You do not need an appointment to work with a peer tutor; simply stop in the Center and ask where in the library the tutor is meeting with students. You can stay and work with the peer tutor for as long or as little as you’d like.
