SLU's Department of Academic Support provides assistance in the pursuit of academic success. From peer-tutoring and writing consultations to disability services, the department offers a wide variety of services and resources to support all SLU students.
Tutoring & Supplemental Instruction Services provides students with one-to-one tutoring in mathematics, history, biology, psychology, philosophy and other disciplines. Upperclass and graduate students are trained as peer tutors and work by appointment with students. Tutoring also is available to all undergraduate students in the Busch Marketplace and Griesedieck Hall.
Writing Services, housed within Academic Support, is staffed by friendly, experienced consultants, who help SLU undergraduate students with all writing, speaking, and multimedia projects. Whether you are brainstorming or working on final revisions, whether you feel you are a strong or weak writer-- the writing consultants are eager to serve as your sounding board. Our individualized support fosters strong critical thinking and rhetorical decision-making.
Online Writing Consultations are also available to SPS students, allowing you to submit your paper and receive feedback completely online.
