The walk-in services allow students to utilize the lab whenever it is convenient for them - no appointment is required. During open hours, at least one member of the Accounting and Finance Lab tutor team will be present to assist with non-graded assignments, study sessions and practice problems. We strongly encourage students to come by often, get to know the tutor team and discuss issues as they arise rather than immediately before an exam. The walk-in service offers access to fellow students who have completed similar undergraduate courses and can offer personal perspectives on the various skills learned and study techniques for the courses.
Group study sessions allow students who are taking the same course the opportunity to discuss the issues encountered and techniques learned in class consistently throughout the semester. A member of the lab tutor team leads the group; however, students are encouraged to engage and assist each other through demonstration and discussion. Because we believe processing information in groups provides an excellent way for students to further their ability to understand and communicate the subject matter, the Accounting and Finance Lab attempts to provide weekly scheduled group environments when possible. However, for groups to be formed there must be a request from multiple students at the same time and a tutor from the Accounting and Finance Lab who is available to lead the group.
Please note, there are no formal group sessions scheduled for Spring 2020.
At the conclusion of every semester, staffing needs are assessed and addressed for the subsequent semester. If you are interested in working in the Accounting and Finance Lab, please complete the application and return it, along with a faculty recommendation, to the Accounting and Finance Lab located in the Academic Achievement Center in the bottom floor of the Library at least 2 weeks prior to the end of the current semester.
The Accounting and Finance Lab is open Monday through Friday, offering assistance to students in both group and one-on-one settings. As a tutor, you have the opportunity to work with fellow students from a variety of accounting and finance courses. Tutors can use this experience to remain current in foundation skills and to improve their communication abilities. In addition, tutors have the opportunity to work alongside faculty and graduate students as well as enroll in a variety of tutor training workshops.
