Group Tutoring

You wouldn’t be the first student to fall behind in your courses. To move ahead, keep up, or catch up in courses, you can join a learning community. These study groups can be as small as two and as large as ten students. If you wish to form a learning community, you should:

  1. Ask 2-10 students who are taking the same courses to join you.
  2. Ask your professor for any extra information or materials that would be helpful in learning the coursework. Be sure you exchange email addresses with your professor, in case you have questions.
  3. Set a time and location for your learning community to meet. These meets can occur in a physical space, like the library, or through social media. For example, you can use Facebook as a discussion board!

Ask a Librarian

If you need help with your research, information on how to correctly cite sources for your paper, or if you’re struggling to find a topic for your paper, don’t hesitate to ask a librarian for help. You can call the library at (804) 862-6226, email at library@rbc.edu, or fill out this.

Writing Center
