**AES tutoring services are free of charge to Ithaca students. Students are permitted to receive tutoring in one course per semester.
**We support Ithaca students by offering support in some of the key "barriers to majors" courses at Ithaca College. We select those courses based on data obtained through Institutional Research and based on our history of requests for services.
**We offer small group tutoring. Individual tutoring is very limited due to the high numbers of requests we are receiving each year. Once we arrive at capacity, we will be unable to accommodate additional requests unless current users drop out of services. Students have the option of signing up for an informal study group, but these are purely student run. AES only collects the information, distributes it to those who are interested, then students must take the responsibility to connect with their peers.
**Each semester we offer Peer Learning Groups (PLuGs) for two or more of the larger introductory courses.
**The Family Educational Rights Privacy Act prohibits us from sharing student information with parents. Unfortunately, we are unable to share with you whether or not your son or daughter is receiving services from our office. Students, however, can voluntarily sign a waiver of confidentiality if they wish to permit us to speak to you about services the use of our services.
**We are not an academic advising office. We do not share information about a student's academic performance either generally or in any particular class. This information is maintained by the faculty, faculty advisor, or advising dean. You can also ask your student about his/her performance.
**Measures have been put in place to ensure that students are respecting AES staff time and resources. We have the right to place low priority on placement or to deny tutorial services to students who have prior semester histories of:
signing up for tutoring and not using the service;
repeated lateness or failing to show up for sessions;
premature dropping out of tutorial services;
discontinuing tutoring without notifying our office.
