One of our most beneficial academic services is the MAC Tutoring Program, a collaboration with the Center for Academic Excellence. The trained, one-on-one tutors are offered free of charge to Truman students who need assistance in many subjects--you can find a list of the subjects we cover here, or just visit Kirk Building 110 or the MAC to see the current schedule. We encourage you to make an appointment with a tutor using Tutor Trac, our tutor management system, but we also take walk-in visits if there is no appointment scheduled.
If you are unable to find a tutor for a subject you need, you may submit a Tutor Request Form. The MAC and CAE will try to find someone to cover the class among the current tutors or, if we have had several requests for a course, we will see if we can hire someone to cover the course.
Tutoring is located in the following buildings at the designated times below.
Center for Academic Excellence, Kirk Building 110
Monday through Friday 9:00a.m. to 5:00p.m.
MAC Tutoring, Adair Building Basement
Sunday -Thursday 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Please note, while personal attention is guaranteed, students are still expected to maintain an open dialogue with their professors. Tutoring is no substitute for a close working relationship with Truman faculty. While the MAC and Center for Academic Excellence make their best efforts to academically support students, we encourage them to make the most of the tutoring experience by keeping professors informed of their progress. Requests for tutoring are processed and responded to in the order in which they are received. The MAC and Center for Academic Excellence do their best to match requests with an appropriate tutor in a quick, timely manner; however, at times we can be restricted by circumstances beyond our control (i.e. the academic calendar, tutor availability, finances, etc.). It is best to request tutoring early in the semester, as soon as you think you might need help.
