Please note, although ALIS is open during these hours, the schedules for tutors vary from day to day.  Tutoring sessions are available by appointments and walk-ins.
We cannot guarantee you will get a tutor, in all disciplines and at all times, if you drop by. Tutoring will be based on availability and order of arrival.
We recommend scheduling an appointment or checking availability of tutors in advance to increase your chances of being helped right away.
