The Cooper Center offers all free individual and group peer-to-peer tutoring for all students at NWU. You can make an appointment with a Cooper Tutor through the Tutor Matching Service (TMS) app on your iPhone, Android, or iPad. You can also make an appointment by clicking on the Schedule Tutoring Session button.
Cooper Tutors are NWU students who have demonstrated competence in particular subject areas and have good communication skills. They are trained by Dr. Lisette Torres-Gerald and Dr. Melissa Hayes in using collaborative learning techniques and model how to learn, rather than solely focusing on the course content. They facilitate study sessions or tutoring appointments up to three times per week in order to assist their peers with critical thinking and study strategies that can transfer across disciplines and courses.
Students who work with Cooper Tutors will discover appropriate application of study strategies (e.g., note taking, graphic organization, questioning techniques, vocabulary acquisition, and test preparation) as they review content material. They will develop a greater understanding of course material while fostering relationships and having fun with other students!
