With funding made possible by Towson University’s Tutoring & Learning Center, the Department of Computer and Information Sciences provides peer tutoring support
for students taking courses in our department free of charge on a walk-in basis for
approximately twenty hours per week during the fall and spring academic semesters
in the YR-403 Project Lab. Tutoring services are also available on an appointment
basis during the summer and winter sessions.
Your tutors will be either graduate or undergraduate Towson University students who
are trained and certified as tutors through the College Reading and Learning Association
(CRLA) certification program as overseen by the Tutoring & Learning Center.
We currently provides tutoring support for the following 100, 200 and 300 level courses:
COSC 109 (Flash / Web Pages)
COSC 111 MS-Office (Applications)
COSC 175 General Computer Science
COSC 236 Computer Science I
COSC 237 Computer Science II
CIS 334 Data Organization
COSC 336 Data and File Structures
ITEC 231 Fund Web Tech
Tutoring support for other programming, database management and web development courses
is contingent upon tutors’ availability and knowledge.
While you take advantage of the tutoring options, there are other things to consider:
All faculty are required to have office hours for their course and I would encourage
you to see your professor during his/her office hours to get help. If you are not
able to make the office hours, you can always try to contact him/her to make an appointment.
