Learning and Tutoring Commons

The CSI Learning and Tutoring Commons provides the academic support that fosters academic success. We offer course content specific assistance as well as learning strategies that will empower students to become independent, self-directed and motivated learners. We are students helping students. Whether a student is looking for assistance with course concepts, working through difficult formulas, drawing an essay to a logical conclusion or seeking study skills advice, our peer tutors are available to assist all CSI students with their academic efforts. We offer drop-in, face to face and online peer tutoring as well as appointment based writing assistance in our online writing lab, the CSI OWL. We aim to provide a welcoming and friendly environment where students can access peer tutoring assistance in person or online and study collaboratively in groups or study alone.

Our Mission

We, the staff of the Innovation and Success Center, are here to provide access to services and programs that support continual learning and growth for students and faculty.
