Tutoring on our campus is a collaborative act, and while there are centers dedicated to tutoring Truman students — such as the CAE Tutoring Center and the Writing Center — many academic departments offer tutoring options. Students are encouraged to explore any and all academic assistance on offer. Below is a list of the department-sponsored tutoring that is available.
Pickler Memorial Library
Research & Instruction Department
The Research & Instruction librarians are the starting point for helping students, faculty, and staff to access information in the library and online. We encourage students to take advantage of the Research Assistance Program (RAP) and schedule a session with us. Setting up a RAP session allows a librarian versed in the subject matter to research a topic in advance and then sit down for an in-depth discussion of the student's research needs.Research and Instruction Website
