The Learning Den provides tutoring for all registered students in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering. Tutoring is conducted in small group format, with a maximum of six students in each group.
Tutors review course-specific material and encourage students to ask questions and exchange information. Students should come to tutoring sessions prepared with questions and specific topics that they would like to review. Students can expect to work with other students in the group while the tutor helps to guide them to understanding. Tutoring is not a substitute for class attendance nor is it a place to just do homework. If you need help in a subject, request support early and often.
Tutors can assist students with:
- Review and strengthening of subject-specific material knowledge
- Assist with homework-like problems
- Course-specific study skills and exam preparation
