The STEM+E Workshop

The STEM+E Tutoring Workshop is a peer-based tutoring program designed to provide one-on-one assistance and small-group support to Holy Cross students in intro and upper level scientific and quantitative courses, including accounting, biology, chemistry, economics, mathematics, and computer sciences, physics and psychology.

Applications for Fall 2021 are now OPEN! Application: Fall 2021 STEM+E Application

Features of the Workshop:

  • The workshop runs as a drop-in and appointment based service.
  • Students are first encouraged to utilize office hours and department workshop tutoring. To keep access to the STEM+E Workshop fair to all students across campus, students may make a maximum of one appointment per day and two appointments per week. Students are welcome to walk in or join the waiting list at any time.
  • STEM+E Sessions last 40 minutes.
  • Peer tutors will assist in several ways: they will explain conceptual material, guide students on how to solve problems, and provide independent learning strategies.

What is the most important advice you would give students taking STEM+E Classes?
First, if you're seeking out the STEM+E office, you're being a great advocate for yourself and not giving up! STEM+E courses can be incredibly challenging, so make sure to take advantage of the extensive academic services the College has provides students. It takes a lot of courage to admit needing and asking for help, but it is incredibly worth it!

Tutors:  CHEM 181, 221, 231; MATH 135, 136
What is the most important advice you would give students taking STEM+E Classes?
It is possible to succeed even in these difficult STEM+E courses as long as you put in the time and effort consistently. Reviewing the material every day will lead you to a much better understanding of the material and will allow you to work out questions you have ahead of time. Sometimes it takes looking at a problem multiple ways to figure it out!

Tutors: ECON 249, 256; MATH 135, 136, 241, 243
What is the most important advice you would give students taking STEM+E Classes?
Go to office hours if you are confused about the class material and don’t be afraid to ask your professor to try to explain a topic in a different way because sometimes a different approach is all you need to gain more clarity.

 

 

Kathryn Hauver '22

Tutors: PSYCH 200
What is the most important advice you would give students taking STEM+E Classes?
The most important piece of advice I would offer students is to learn from your mistakes. It's easy to feel down about messing up, but know that it is part of the learning process.

What is the most important advice you would give students taking STEM+E Classes?
It's most important to keep up with the material on a regular basis, as it will be much easier to prepare for exams if you have been learning new material along the way. This also means seeking help when you need it.

 

 

Emily Devine '21


Hometown: Lexington, MA
Tutors: CSCI 131, CSCI 132, MATH135, MATH 136, MATH 241, MATH 243, MATH 244
What is the most important advice you would give students taking STEM+E Classes?
Make use of all the resources outside of class that the college has to offer: office hours, workshops and other students. Be proactive by starting your assignments in advance so that you can ask attend office hours or a tutoring workshop to ask questions and work through assignments with another person. Working with classmates, professors or tutors and asking questions are essential to success in STEM+E courses.

What is the most important advice you would give students taking STEM+E Classes?
Never be afraid to speak up and ask questions. Everyone learns differently and interprets STEM+E classes in their own way, so sometimes all you need is to see another way of how to understand the material.
