Tutoring & Writing Assistance

Need assistance with courses? Our graduate and undergraduate peer tutors and writing consultants can help! The Center for Teaching and Learning includes a team of trained tutors to help enhance the quality of your learning. This service is free to all Marymount students and faculty members. 


Services for Students

  • All writers need readers! Writing consultants can help graduates and undergraduates at any stage of the writing process – from understanding the assignment and brainstorming through revision and final editing.
  • Math, science, and other course-specific assistance is also available for many undergraduate courses, whether you’re stuck on a homework problem or reviewing for an exam.
