Need help in a particular course? Need a refresher on subject material? Want better learning and study skills?
LIT offers individual tutoring and/or Supplemental Instruction for students. We make every effort to find a tutor in any subject requested. Tutoring is available upon request.

Students who are interested in tutoring may sign up at any point in the semester. We encourage students to sign up early in the semester to avoid scheduling delays. Research shows that students who sign up for tutoring within the first four weeks of the semester are 43% more likely to be successful (earn an A, B, or C) in the course for which tutoring is received.
Live, on-demand tutoring is avaialble via Brainfuse at no additional cost to students. Brainfuse is accessible in Blackboard Learn under the LIT Tools link.
Brainfuse allows students to schedule and connect with certified tutors who provide live, on-demand tutoring in a variety of subjects – including Business, Math, and Science. Students may also use the Writing Lab feature in Brainfuse to get support during all phases of the writing process. Students using the Writing Lab feature can submit written work to be reviewed and returned by professional writing tutors. The Brainfuse Writing Lab emphasizes structure, voice, word choice, content, and sentence fluency when reviewing student submissions.
