Today I wanted to talk to you about the tutoring center here at FIT, because I got a few questions about it. I used to be the type of person that never went to the tutoring center or ask for help, because I thought it was going to be a waste of time and it made me feel like I wasn’t good enough. But since I have gone there a couple of times and it has completely changed my opinion about it. Here are some benefits of the tutoring center:
Wide Range of Subject The tutoring center at FIT offers such a wide range of subject areas such as draping, sewing, pattern-making, math, economics, science, accounting, computer software, just to name a few. My favorite and the one I use the most is the writing studio, I love to go there when I have presentations or papers dues, so I can go over them. But don’t expect them to do all the work, because they won’t, you have to come prepared!
Walk-In What’s really great is that they have walk-in hours, where you can show up and they assign you a tutor that’s available at the moment. Although I do encourage and recommend everyone to schedule an appointment, because sometimes you have to wait really long. Also they only allow you 30 minutes with the tutor, which is really short.

Get Extra Credit A lot of professor at FIT, will count your visits at the tutoring center (has to be related to the class obviously) as extra credit. I remember I used to go there for my micro class and my professor counted it as extra credit. If your teacher doesn’t mention it, just ask him/her yourself, it won’t hurt!
Great Tutors A lot of the tutors at the tutoring center are students, which I personally think is great, because they often took the same classes you did with the same professors, which makes them have a better understanding of what is expected in that particular class/course. I also think they have a better and easier way of explaining things to students.
Hope this was helpful!
