    Until further notice, CSU Pueblo is serving our students and the public in a remote model.

General Education Tutoring Center

Spring 2020 Online Support

For the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester, the Gen Ed Tutoring Center will continue to offer weekly, recurring tutoring for students enrolled in SPN 101-202 and ITL 101-202 classes. If you'd like to request tutoring for any of those classes, please join us in our new Discord server during our regular business hours (Monday through Friday 8:00am-5:00pm).

Access to Online Gen Ed Tutoring

Hop into either the "request Spanish tutoring" channel or the "request Italian tutoring" channel, and then say hi! Chime in with a request for Spanish/Italian tutoring, and the appropriate tutor will reach out to you to make arrangements for weekly hour-long sessions on whatever platform you're comfortable with.

If you have any further questions about this service, just email Chad Pickering, director of the Gen Ed Tutoring Center, at 

The CHASS General Education Tutoring Center is here to provide free individual and group-based tutoring sessions for all students currently enrolled in lower-division general education courses within the humanities, social sciences, and foreign languages (Spanish, French, Italian, German, or ASL). If you’re in a course that fits one of these categories and feel that you can benefit from meeting ​with someone who has taken it previously, has done well in it, and is knowledgeable about its content, then come to the Gen Ed Tutoring Center and request to meet with a tutor.

Tutoring sessions in the Gen Ed Tutoring Center are usually fifty minutes long and recur on a weekly basis. To establish a weekly tutoring schedule, visit the Gen Ed Tutoring Center in LARC 251, and ask for the tutor request form. After you’ve completed and submitted the form, the director of the Gen Ed Tutoring Center will match your availability (as you’ve indicated on the request form) with the availability of a tutor who can assist you. You’ll then be contacted directly by the director, who will ask you to confirm whether or not a proposed weekly schedule is satisfactory to you. Once you give your confirmation, the schedule will be implemented, and then you and your tutor can begin meeting in the Center at those arranged times (for example, every Wednesday at 1:00).

Our Tutors:

The Gen Ed tutors are friendly CSU-Pueblo undergraduate students who have previously taken and earned a high grade in the general education courses for which you request tutoring. Their job is to help you better understand the content of your course, study more effectively, and even prepare for upcoming exams.

For a Productive Session:

To maximize the benefits of meeting with your Gen Ed tutor, you’ll want to arrive at each session ready to discuss specific questions and concerns you have. It is also usually helpful to bring your course textbook (or other course texts and materials) to your sessions so that your tutor can have a clearer understanding of what you’re currently studying on any given week. Finally, be prepared to act as a full participant in each discussion you have with your tutor. The more active your participation, the more rewarding and productive your sessions will be!

Our Mission Statement:

Through regularly recurring tutoring sessions, the CHASS General Education Tutoring (GET) Center assists students taking developmental and general education courses in the humanities or social sciences to understand course content and to become active, independent learners.
