Success Resources for Faculty and Staff

Recommend a Tutor

Any student who has earned a B+ or higher in a specific course, holds a cumulative GPA of above a 3.0, has completed the tutor training program and has received a recommendation from the faculty member can tutor for the Center for Student Success. 

Instructors can click here to submit a recommendation for a student to serve as a tutor. Please feel free to e-mail us at if you prefer to submit your recommendation that way instead.

PRIORITY RECOMMENDATIONS - Instructors are encouraged to identify at least one tutor for each of their courses. Please discuss this opportunity with the student. 

Instructors have until the beginning of the third week of the semester to notify on your recommendation. After that time, we will pair requests with someone who has already completed the requirements. 

We happily accept recommendations throughout the semester, but for the sake of timeliness, we ask for specific course recommendations as early as possible.

Starfish is an early alert system used to inform you of specific concerns and support systems in place to help you succeed in this course. If you receive an email with {STARFISH} in the subject line it is an indication that you should come meet with me to discuss the concerns. Starfish also provides extensive options for other academic support services.
