Professional Tutors (Part-time up to 30 Hours per week)
The Professional Tutors for the Science Technology Engineering and
Mathematics Success Center ( STEM SSC ) will perform tutoring and
mentoring duties for students in the following courses:
• Biological Concepts: an introduction to the basic concepts used
in the study of biology. Topics covered include metrics and
measurement, scientific instrumentation, microscopy, the cell and
cellular metabolism and genetics.
• Fundamentals of Biology I: a study of the fundamental concepts of
biology designed to acquaint majors with the scientific method and
to develop critical thinking skills through hands-on exploration.
Emphasis is placed on the gathering of data and the writing of
formal lab reports.
• Fundamentals of Biology II: A continuing study of the fundamental
concepts in biology with emphasis placed upon the evolution and
diversity of organisms and their interactions through a survey of
Kingdoms Prokarya, Fungi, Plantae and Animalia as well as the
Protists. The semester culminates with emphasis on animal tissues,
homeostasis, and organ systems.
• Chemical Concepts: covers some of the basic mathematical skills
needed for success in chemistry courses as well as introducing
basic concepts of chemistry. The course is designed to help
students who have not taken a Chemistry course.
• General Chemistry I: begins a sequence which supplies a
foundation in chemistry for science majors. Topics covered include
atomic structure, bonding, stoichiometry, thermo-chemistry,
periodic law, gas laws, and solutions.
• General Chemistry II: This course completes the sequence begun in
CHM 1201. Topics covered include kinetics, equilibria, pH,
solubility, thermodynamics, and electrochemistry.
• College Algebra: topics include functions, rational expressions,
systems of linear equations, Factor and Remainder Theorem,
operations on functions, radical equations, inequalities, matrices,
variations and exponential and logarithmic functions, sequences,
series, and the binomial theorem.
• Pre-Calculus: This is an accelerated course in College Algebra
and Trigonometry. Topics include linear, quadratic, polynomial,
rational, radical, root, piecewise, exponential, logarithmic,
trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions; graphs and
transformations; equations and inequalities; systems of equations;
sequences and series; vectors and applications.
• Trigonometry: topics include conic sections, exponential and
logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, inverse
trigonometric functions, identities and equations, lines, polar
coordinates, vectors in the plane, application problems, and
• Calculus I: topics include limits of functions, infinite limits,
derivative and techniques of differentiation, implicit
differentiation, higher derivatives, graphing, maxima and minima,
plane curves, motion, anti-derivatives, indefinite, and definite
integrals, and Fundamentals Theorem of Calculus.
• Calculus II: topics include the fundamental theorem of calculus,
the definite integral, techniques, and applications of integration.
Evaluation of improper integrals, indeterminate forms, graphs of
polar equations, area in polar coordinates and parametric
equations. Differentiation and integration a power series, Taylor
and MacLaurin series. Calculation and application of the dot and
ross products of vectors.
The duties shall include; assisting students with homework
assignments, assisting students with project and laboratory
assignments, assisting instructor, if needed, in the classroom by
helping students with in class problems and programs, and mentoring
students on understanding the purpose in their respective
disciplines. The tutors will provide information to the STEM
Success Center Manager on the performance of students taking
advantage of the tutoring and mentoring services.
