The Science, Technology, Engineering and Math STEM Center offers a variety of tutoring and instructional support services for many courses. These include drop-in and group tutoring as well as support from both part-time (adjuncts) and full-time (faculty) instructors. We encourage you to read and learn about our types of tutoring and support services to make the best of your experience when in the STEM Center. 

Learn more about STEM Center services.

Students may use all spaces and technology during STEM Center Study Hours, collaborate or relax between study sessions. Tutors are not available for all subjects all day.  

Drop-in Tutoring is typically available for most subjects throughout the week.  Please check with Sarah Adams to learn about specific subject times.  This service is paid for by student fees and other administrative support. Not showing up for help is like throwing away your money! So please, come in and take advantage of the remodeled space and services.

Last but not least, the STEM Center hosts a variety of Supplemental Instruction (SI) Sessions. These sessions are part of practice to facilitate group collaboration and learning. An SI leader is typically a student that previously excelled in the course, is instructor recommended, sits in on lecture/lab and then provides learning sessions dedicated to your course content. These sessions are funded mainly by grants (Title V and Title-III Part F), which are the Big Bend Student Success Center and STEM Center development grants.

You may also find many of the Math and Science Department instructors available to help in the STEM Center. We encourage you to take advantage of their support by starting a study group or having questions ready during their hour(s) in the STEM Center. You can find which instructors are available and when under the Faculty Support Hours. Please take the time to thank your instructor for supporting students in the tutoring labs.  

Supplemental Instruction

These sessions are held in the STEM Center unless otherwise posted and will be available after the first week of class.  Your SI leader will provide a survey to your class to determine the best time to hold an SI session.  You may also check with the front desk for the location of your SI session. (SI LEADERS AND LOCATION TBA)
