Free Reading Tutorials

Upon accepting a student to the program, RAMP staff design an individualized program of instruction tailored to the student's specific needs, developing college-level reading comprehension, active/critical reading, research skills, vocabulary, and reading rate. With a peer tutor, students work with a variety of materials, including computer applications; fiction and non-fiction books and anthologies; workbooks and textbooks; and participants' own reading materials from class. 

RAMP also provides tutoring for students preparing to take the CBEST, GRE, GMAT, MCAT, and other tests required for graduate school admission.

Tutoring begins week two of each term. We recommend that participants schedule their sessions during the first week of the term, but students can request tutoring at any time during the term. Scheduling occurs on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants attend reoccurring weekly or bi-weekly 50-minute tutorial sessions.

Tutoring Request Form can be found here. Participants can submit the form in person (Library, Room 2919) or email ramp@cpp.edu with the attached form. Students will receive an email with their appointment details. They can check their scheduled appointments on GradesFirst using their Cal Poly username and password and clicking on the Calendar tab.
