Tutoring and Reading Center
Winter 2023 Hours Monday-Thursday: 9 am-8 pm Friday 9 am-4 pm Sunday 4 pm-8 pm

Current GVSU students can schedule an individual appointment with one of our highly-trained peer tutors in advance for 50-minutes of dedicated time. You can choose an in-depth review of course materials, a study session, content review, or practice; you set the agenda for the session. 

Schedule once, as needed, or on a recurring weekly basis - whatever works best for you! 

You choose the tutor you work with, and you can work with the same tutor or different tutors when it is convenient for you.

Meet the Staff Members of the Month for February!

Beth McLaughlin


Beth McLaughlin is majoring in International Relations and Biochemistry. She tutors a variety of chemistry courses. 

We Have Two Tutors of the Month for February!

"(Beth)She is phenomenal as a tutor and a person. It’s hard to put it in just a sentence or two; she is a great listener, tries to accommodate to student’s learning styles (and does it so effectively), is open minded, understanding, shows empathy but also sets firm expectations for success, builds great bonds with tutees. I love having her as my tutor."


"Elliot has always been very response to any questions I have and does an amazing job breaking down complicated Japanese language grammar patterns! She also helps me calm down by creating a super chill learning environment, which helps a lot since I have horrible anxiety."

Here's What Students Say About Tutoring

"The most valuable thing I received from the Tutoring center was someone having my back. I was so stressed and worried I was not going to pass my class, but once I started with my tutor my whole semester turned around. I am so thankful!"

"I have worked with Rachel, Sarah, Stephanie, and Beth. I grew fond of my tutors very quickly because they created a safe and interactive environment since the first day I met them. They listened attentively and really helped using how I learned best which was utilizing the whiteboard and drawing things out. They have never made me feel dumb or embarrassed about what I didn’t know as well as the pace that I was learning. They explain everything so clearly. I don’t know what I would have done without them, they’re super awesome in every way!!"

"Working with Elias was awesome :) He was very understanding of how far behind I was due to missing classes and helped reassure me. He was also very knowledgeable in CHM 115 and was more than willing to explain different subjects in a way I understood them best."
