Here are our top resources and recommendations for furthering your success in your Psychology courses!
We highly encourage you to connect with your professor and attend office hours first! Professor office hours are often posted on the front of the syllabus, and they can serve as a great entry point to discussing how you are doing in the class and how to make productive changes in the way you study moving forward.
2. Group Tutoring
Group tutoring is offered for the following courses:
If you wish to make an appointment, follow the directions below:
|Using the Mobile App|
|Using the Web App|
Peer tutoring is held in small groups for historically difficult classes. While the principles of collaborative and peer to peer learning are implemented like Supplemental Instruction, students versus their peer tutors are asked to prepare in advance and bring their questions to sessions.
Peer Tutoring sessions are online! If you make an appointment on Navigate, you will be able to access your Zoom link 15 minutes before your appointment on Navigate on the main page. For more information on how to use Zoom in a peer tutoring session, see below or visit our peer tutoring program page.
3. Supplemental Instruction (SI)
In fall, the following courses are SI-sponsored:
- PSYC 101
Check out our SI Session schedule on our Tutoring Center homepage (www.luc.edu/tutoring) for SI session times. If your section does not have an SI Leader, you are welcome to attend any SI session for the course. No appointment is needed! SI sessions are regularly scheduled, out-of-class group study sessions led by an undergrad SI leader and driven by your needs. You can expect to review notes, discuss and participate in activities around materials/ lecture, review and predict test questions, and work out problems together. Please bring your notes, textbook, and any other study materials to SI sessions.
SI sessions are online! Access the SI session schedule on our homepage (luc.edu/tutoring) for Zoom links to your SI sessions! For more information on how to use Zoom in a SI session, please see below.
4. Mathematics and Statistics Club
Math Club can offer free assistance with PSYC 304, as well, during fall and spring semesters. For tutoring hours and information, please visit their website.
5. Success Coaching
Want to further develop your time management, test taking strategies, and overall study skills? Meet one-on-one with a Success Coach, who are training graduate students that can help take your academic success to the next level! You can talk about experiences inside and out of the classroom, identify areas of strength and growth, and create a customized, realistic plan for success. Make an appointment on Navigate.
All Success Coaching appointments are online! After making an appointment on Navigate, your Success Coach will send you a Zoom link prior to the appointment time. For more information on how to use Zoom in a Success Coaching appointment, please see below.
If students have never used Zoom before, they are encouraged to login to https://luc.zoom.us/ using their LUC UVID and password prior to the session. Then, download the Zoom program (on laptops) or app (on smartphones/tablets).
If the student does not have access to a webcam, microphone, or the internet, the student is encouraged to reach out to the SI Leader, Peer Tutor, Success Coach, and/or Tutoring Center staff (firstname.lastname@example.org) for alternative options.
If Zoom is not working, students are encouraged to review the Zoom participant’s guide, call ITS at 773-508-4487, or email ITS at email@example.com.
If the link is not working or the SI Leader/ Peer Tutor/ Success Coach is not present at the designated time, please email the student leader or firstname.lastname@example.org.
