The school offers free one-on-one tutoring or group tutoring to students who qualify to improve student’s academic performance. This service is provided by either pharmacy students within their own class or in classes above.
In addition to individual tutoring, the school also provides Facilitated Group Learning (FGL) sessions for classes that historically have more students struggle and result in a higher incidence of grades of D and F. FGL is a regularly scheduled academic assistance program aimed to provide opportunities for students to review notes, discuss readings for class and develop organizational strategies for success in the curriculum. The FGL leaders facilitate active self-learning by encouraging students to identify key points of the lectures, think proactively about upcoming topics and find mechanisms for students to answer their own questions. In FGL sessions, the tutors do not lecture or re-teach course material.
Conducting the sessions include recent graduates and current peer students who will attend classes and view the Panopto recordings. The FGL sessions are free of charge and optional for all students but students are asked to attend all or as many sessions as possible and not just attend sessions before exams and quizzes.
