Tutoring

When group study sessions just aren’t enough, work with one of our trained peer tutors. Individual or small group peer tutoring is available on either a long-term or short-term basis in most 100- and 200-level courses.

The Academic Success Center (ASC) provides free tutoring for groups of one to three students working with a peer tutor for the courses listed below. Tutoring is available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Applications for fall 2020 tutoring will be accepted Wednesday August 26–November 3.

Tutors will provide students with a minimum of one hour of assistance weekly. Additionally, up to three hours per week are permitted if the tutor is able to accommodate these in their schedule. 

Each year, more than 800 tutoring matches are made through the ASC peer tutoring service. Before seeking tutoring, we recommend that you talk with the professor of the course involved. When used appropriately, tutoring can make a significant difference in a student's overall course performance; however, it is not a replacement or substitute for communication with the professor.
