Connecting the campus to the community

 

Tutoring: Individual & Group

MSU Billings is offering two new learning opportunities for youth in our community this year:  Tutoring and Academic Group Learning Sessions.  Continue reading to learn more about each new opportunity!

 

TUTORING AT MSUB (for students in grades 4-12)

 

Tutoring in a wide-array of subjects will also be available at MSUB in the fall, spring, and summer.  All tutors are MSUB students who excel in the subject matter, but are still learning and earning their degree.  Tutoring is a fabulous way for MSUB students to solidify their knowledge while ensuring your child becomes a confident, capable, and independent learner.  All MSUB tutors have successfully completed the University’s tutoring program and have an MSUB faculty advisor.  All tutoring takes place on the MSUB campus.

 

Tutoring can be an important part of your child’s learning because…

  • tutoring provides personalized one-on-one attention with an MSUB student who not only understands the subject matter but who may have tips on study skills.
  • tutoring allows students to ask questions and get real answers immediately.
  • tutoring may encourage students to work harder in the subject matter and/or be more prepared for their tutoring sessions.
  • tutoring may help students determine what their best method for learning is (for example, practice and repetition or a hands-on creative approach).
  • tutoring may provide opportunities for advancement in a subject matter.

One-on-One Tutoring Fee:  $297 (this includes 2 one-hour tutoring sessions per week for 9 (nine) weeks plus an MSUB parking pass)

ACADEMIC GROUP LEARNING SESSIONS

 

Academic Group Learning Sessions will be available two times a semester (fall and spring) of each academic school year.  These will be similar to our summer camp program where students learn with their peers in a fun yet educational setting.  All instructors will be MSUB students and/or staff who excel in the discipline they will be teaching and are trained tutors.  Courses will be designed by MSUB students and learning professionals. 

 

Each semester two 6-week opportunities will be available – session one and session two.  The dates, hours, and subjects of these offerings have been created from data collected from a questionnaire completed by many homeschool families in our region.  If you would like to participate in this questionnaire, please let us know online. Your feedback will help us create additional learning opportunities in the future!

 

FALL 2017 FIRST SESSION:  September 21 – October 26, 2017 (see dates and times below)

 

Elements of Art

September 21 – October 26 (Thursdays) from 12 (noon) to 2:00 pm

Geared toward students in 5-9 grades

Location:  MSU Billings - College of Education, Room 280

Instructor:  Angel Shandy, MSUB student in K-12 art education with a focus on art history (currently holds a fine art degree)

 

Explore the seven elements of art: line, color, value, texture, shape, form, and space. These elements work together to form balanced compositions. Students will learn how to use various mediums like graphite, charcoal, water and acrylic paint, as well as do some three dimensional work.  Plus, learn a little about art history and the elements of art used by some famous artists.

Calculus – Basic to Advanced Assistance

September 21 – October 26 (Thursdays) from 7:00 to 9:00 pm

Geared toward students in middle and high school

Location:  MSU Billings, Library, Room 224 (located inside the LA Building, second floor)

Fee:  $120

Instructor:  Alex Shin, MSUB graduate in Mathematics with High School Education Licensure

 

Come with your questions!  This program, setup as a group tutoring session, will help you better understand calculus, including what you are currently working on.  Calculus is like another language within math that helps us understand and calculate solutions within the real world.  It really is unique from other mathematics.  You are always learning or discovering something new that you can do with calculus!

Speech & Communication

September 21 – October 26 (Thursdays) from 12 (noon) to 2:00 pm

Geared toward students in 5-9 grades

Location:  MSU Billings – College of Education, Room 301

Fee:  $120 (includes MSUB parking pass)

Instructor:  Scott Frazier, graduate degree in communications, national and international presenter, Crow and Santee

 

We give speeches every day when we speak with our family and friends, so why does it seem more difficult to give a speech in front of an audience?  In this program, we will discuss the importance of the “pre-speech” (knowing your audience, researching your topic, etc.) and parts of a speech (beginning, supporting ideas, and conclusion).  Each student will prepare and give several speeches (informative, extemporaneous, etc.) and learn ways to get over the angst of giving a speech.
