The Math Center provides tutoring for math courses. The Center for Research & Writing provides tutoring for research & writing across the curriculums. Aspire provides peer tutoring for other introductory level courses based on availability of qualified tutors.
The program brings together students with a trained tutor to improve the skills essential for the course, address questions about the course content, organize a study plan, and build confidence.
Aspire Tutoring is intended to supplement and complement the course as designed and presented by the instructor; it is not a replacement for the course. Students are strongly encouraged to seek primary support from their faculty.
Tutoring is open to all students on campus, subject to the availability of tutors.
How do I schedule an appointment with a tutor?

Tutoring sessions will take place via Zoom Conferencing. Tutors will reach out with their Zoom meeting link once an appointment has been scheduled. Tutees do not need to download Zoom/have an account to access tutoring. Please check back here for any future updates.
Who are our tutors?
Tutors are current Keene State students who may be eligible for work study or student hourly pay. Tutors must receive an A or B in the course or courses they wish to tutor and have an overall GPA of at least a 2.75 (3.0 preferred) and maintain that GPA. Tutors must communicate well and be willing to work with individuals or small groups, have a sincere desire to help, and have a high level of patience.
