General Tutoring Information

Tutoring is:

  • Free to students
  • Available in many 100 and 200 level courses
  • A weekly commitment

All of our tutoring appointments accommodate small groups of up to 3 students. Small groups consist of students enrolled in the same course section number. If no other students select the same tutoring time, you may end up working with one of our tutors one-on-one. We cannot guarantee which type of appointment you will be in.

All students may receive 1 hour of tutoring per week per course, for up to two (2) courses. We ask that you commit to attending your scheduled appointment each week, per our attendance policy. If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, you can do so by contacting your tutor directly via email or telephone.
