Meeting With A Tutor

Start meeting with a tutor early! Although students can meet with a tutor at any time in the semester, tutoring is most effective if you begin early. Don't wait until you develop significant problems!

  • Tutoring is offered free of charge for currently registered students and it is available for most courses. When the campus is open, most centers offer drop-in tutoring service, and a few centers offer tutoring by appointment. To find out if there is tutoring in a particular topic, just review our Tutoring Schedules for the various centers. Note that the Tutoring Schedules are updated regularly, so make sure you check this webpage frequently to verify that you have the correct schedule for that day.

  • After you review the availability of one of our tutors that fits your schedule, just contact the tutoring center and meet with one of the tutors available. During the tutoring session, there may be one or more students with you.

  • If you need assistance in a course that is not listed on our schedule, please speak with the Tutoring Coordinator in the related Tutoring Center.
