The College of Science provides Learning Assistants for select courses to facilitate the learning of undergraduates in classrooms, labs, help rooms, and other venues.

The Communication Center is located in the Gateway Library, room 134I, and the operating hours are M-F, 10:00-5:00 pm.

Primarily, the Communication Center is service offered to the Comm 100/101 students. For these students, they can use the following website address to make appointments: https://commcenter.as.me/schedule.php

For students who are not in Comm 100/101, the Communication Center is open for walk-in appointments. These walk-ins are available on a first come, first served basis and only if the coaches are not already scheduled with a Comm 100/101 student.

Students may come in and receive coaching on public speaking, outlining, research, presentation aids, group work, interviewing, record presentations, and other basic communication skills. We also have a Facebook page called GMU Communication Center where students can make appointments and ask questions.

The IT Department’s mentor tutoring resource is called STARS. For more information go to IT Peer Mentoring after the beginning of the semester.

You can view the schedule for graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) and adjunct instructors. Appointments with full-time instructors can be made using the IST Advising Appointment System.

Some tips:

  1. First, and most importantly, stay in contact with the instructor of the course. They are there to help you.
  2. If there is a Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) assigned to the course, reach out to them. They are also there to help you.
  3. Seek out a peer mentor from GMU STARS Alliance Organization, which offers tutoring in a number of IT courses.
  4. Seek out a tutor from VSE
