The Science Center provides free tutoring for RWU students enrolled in science courses.

Online Tutoring for Spring 2021 Science Courses

For free tutoring in RWU science courses, students should go to Bridges and click on this course: "RWU Online Tutoring SP 21." On the left side list of tabs, you will see "Science Tutoring." Click on this tab and then click on the name of the tutor when their schedule indicates they are available. You can also check out this video guide to using the site.

For additional information about the Tutoring Center please see our website.

While you will now see "RWU Online Tutoring SP 21" listed as a course in Bridges and in Roger Central, you are not being charged for a course. All tutoring remains free of charge to RWU students.  For concerns or assistance with science tutoring, please contact Tracey McDonnell Wysor, Coordinator of the Science Center, at twysor@rwu.edu.
