SSS provides tutoring in the following areas:

Mathematics

Math Specialist Tracie Bateman has over 20 years of teaching experience at the high school and college levels. She and her team of peer tutors can help you in any Math or Statistics course at the 200-level or below. Be sure to check the math schedule to find the tutors who specialize in your area of need. If you have another mathematics-related course or assignment you need assistance with, check with Tracie first. All math tutoring is walk-in only--no appointment necessary.

Science 

Peer tutors specializing in areas of biology, chemistry, and physics are available throughout the week. Consult the science schedule to see which tutors are available for your course. No appointment necessary. If none of our peer tutors are able to assist you in a given course, please talk to Luke Fannin, Writing Specialist, or your advisor to arrange a private tutor.

Writing

Writing Specialist Luke Fannin and the writing peer tutors are here to assist in all aspects of writing a college paper: brainstorming topics, organizing ideas, and revising drafts. Writing tutors are also available for assistance with writing and delivering speeches, developing cover letters and resumes, and crafting essays for scholarship, program, and grad school applications. All tutoring sessions are one-on-one. Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome when available.

Other Subject Areas

If your tutoring needs lie outside of the content areas listed above, please let us know! In the past, we have successfully arranged private tutors for classes in sociology, communications, modern languages, and many more. Please let your advisor know right away if you need extra help, or contact Luke Fannin directly.

Year: Senior

Hometown: Spring Valley, WI

Major: Math Education

A bit about me: I really enjoy reading, singing, talking, desserts, getting outside, and avoiding my homework with Netflix series. I'm pretty optimistic towards life and recently got started on my bucket list by running a marathon with my dad! Tutoring has been a blast because it gives me the opportunity to meet and help so many new people.

Year: Junior

Hometown: Wausau, WI

Major: Public Health, Pre-PA

A bit about me: I enjoy sports such as basketball, soccer, and hockey.  When I am done with school I want to move out of state and have a job that will allow me to travel and see other parts of the world.  My ultimate goal is to one day start my own company and create a product as iconic as the iPhone is today.

SCIENCE

 DEbert

Drew Ebert

Year: Senior

Hometown: De Pere, WI

Major: Biology

Minor: Spanish

A bit about me: I am majoring in Biology in hopes of becoming a PA in pediatrics!  My favorite class so far was Human A&P, but I generally enjoy all Biology classes.  I like to read, spend time outside, and hang out with friends and family, but most of all I love traveling.  My favorite travel experience was going to Peru on a medical mission trip.  It was incredible to be able to help the Peruvians medically and to communicate with them in Spanish.  I hope to continue this type of experience in the future as well!

 AJahns

Allison Jahns

Year: Senior

Hometown: Burlington, IL

Major: Exercise & Sport Science, Pre-PT

A bit about me: I enjoy bluff hikes, going to the beach, swimming, and anything where I get to spend time with friends and family. When I'm not at school, I work as a physical therapist aide which I really enjoy because I love spending time with patients, helping them overcome barriers, and feel better while at the same time learning about what it takes to be a physical therapist because that is my dream job. I like tutoring for the same reason of being able to help people work through difficulties in their schoolwork because it is very fulfilling to have the opportunity to benefit and help my peers.

WRITING

 EWilks

Emi Wilks

Year: Senior

Hometown: Albuquerque, NM

Majors: English (Writing & Rhetoric concentration) & Art

A bit about me: I do college gymnastics and help coach the Jr. Eagle team program here at UWL, which are two of my favorite things to do. In my free time, I enjoy riding my bike, reading, listening to music, and spending time with my friends. Writing is something that has always helped me to better understand and express myself, even so I know that writing is something that is extremely difficult to do. I like tutoring because I love working with others and being able to help them express their ideas on the page. I think I learn just as much from the people I tutor as they do from me.
