Tutoring Program

  /  Tutoring Program

New York College of Health Professions’s Tutoring Program is composed of two programs: the Peer-based program and the Faculty Tutorial program. Both programs offer one-on-one assistance and small group support to students in either the School of Massage Therapy and/or the Graduate School of Oriental Medicine.

New York Collegeof Health Professions sponsors these Programs for students who wish to obtain additional assistance in any class subject. Assistance is available for all Health Science classes, Massage Technique classes and Oriental Medicine/Acupuncture classes.

Peer tutors are students who have already completed a course and received at least an A- in the course. Faculty Tutorials and Midterm/Final Review sessions are lead by actual New York College instructors.

Before visiting a Tutor, you should:

  • Review the last reading or chapter you have been assigned for the course.
  • Bring your textbook and any class notes which are relevant to the questions you have. This will help the Tutor to figure out how the material has been presented and then be better prepared to help you.
  • For Faculty Tutorial sessions, come prepared with questions. The purpose of the Faculty Tutorial program is to have instructors work one-on-one with students in regards to specific questions students may have regarding the lecture material.
  • For Technique Tutorial sessions, if possible please bring a partner to work on.
