Tutoring is done by students who have successfully completed Fundamentals of Speech Communication, Critical Thinking and Small Groups, Introduction to Argumentation, or Critical Listening and Thinking. Tutors work one-on-one with students from those classes who want help learning the concepts, studying for exams, or preparing speaking assignments.
