Learning Assistants

Learning Assistants help student-athletes in building the skills essential for their pursuit of a degree at the University of Minnesota. Learning Assistants serve as role models, study skills instructors, time management assistants, and guides for student-athletes at the University of Minnesota. This position requires constant feedback to the student, the coordinator of learning services, and academic counselor to monitor student-athlete progress and performance. Learning Assisants do not need to know all of the answers but should be able to direct student-athletes to the tools and resources necessary, through the University and the Learning Center, to be successful.

Subject Tutors

A subject tutor is responsible for breaking down concepts to a student for a particular course. The tutor must be able to explain the course material in an easy-to-understand manner and in a variety of ways. The tutor is not required to have taken the course personally; however, the tutor must be knowledgeable on the subject matter. Subject tutors typically meet for weekly sessions, so a consistent schedule is preferable. Subject tutors are able to tutor as many subjects as he/she/they feel comfortable tutoring.
