St. Augustine College Tutoring Center

The Mission of St. Augustine College Tutoring Center

The Tutoring Center at St. Augustine College strives to provide individualized instructional support in the areas of math, analytic reading, study methods, and the understanding of course-related content, the development of written assignments in multiple areas of study, and the editing of writing at each of its five locations within the Chicago area.

During COVID-19 our tutoring platform has been primarily on-line; however, we have begun to open more in-person tutoring opportunities, please look closely at tutoring opportunities.  Also, if you have in person tutoring needs, please add that to your request and we will work with you to meet your needs.  Please know that the Tutoring Center is here to support students as they navigate their way through online learning and beyond. Below is a general guide to the SAC Tutoring Center process as well as a variety of resources to help assist students in their academic studies. You can access a copy of the current Tutoring Center Newsletter by clicking the link below.

Individual Tutoring Requests can be made by students, faculty, and advisors. 

Group Tutoring Requests can be made by faculty or students if they feel that there is a tutoring need for two or more students in a specific course.

Once the requests are submitted, the students will be contacted for further appointments and the tutoring process. Students must be sure to provide the necessary assignment documents that they are working on, in order for tutors to fully assist.

Formatting styles are developed by different organizations to create a systematic way to format papers as you prepare for different professions.  

Two important formats are MLA (Modern Language Association) and APA (American Psychological Association). Anyone taking 100 level English courses including Composition I (ENG 160), Composition II (ENG 162) and Speech (ENG 165) as well as many of the General Education courses at St. Augustine College will need to know MLA.  Students who take Psychology, Social Work or any social science course will need to know APA.  You can get ahead by attending a workshop where you can learn how to format even begin your paper.  Just hop on a Zoom workshop in week 2 or 3 and you can develop a template for any paper you have due.  Below are the times for APA and MLA workshops in Week 2 and Week 3.
