Individual tutoring appointments are designed to provide one-on-one assistance for students enrolled in select courses.  Students will work with a peer tutor who possesses excellent interpersonal skills and has demonstrated a strong commitment to assisting students academically.  Individual tutoring sessions are 35 minutes in length and will take place on Zoom.  We ask that you sign up for your tutoring session at least 30 minutes before your appointment. 

Tutoring will begin on Monday, February 15th and end on Friday, May 7th.

Individual tutoring is not...
  • Individual tutoring is not...a substitute for attending class, paying attention, and taking good notes
  • Individual tutoring is not...about finding someone to help you get your homework done (We will not simply do your homework for you!) 
  • Individual tutoring is not...a substitute for the time and effort you need to spend studying course material on your own
How to get the most out of your tutoring session
  • Be motivated!  This means that you should be attending class regularly, keeping up with the reading and homework, and doing work for the class outside of your tutoring session.  If you aren't willing to put forth the effort to do well in the class, there's little that the tutor can do to help you.
  • Come with a specific question or goal for the tutoring session.  What do you want to accomplish?  Be sure to communicate your goal to your tutor.
  • Seek help from your professors and TA.  They are the BEST resouces when you are having trouble in a course and they are here to help you!
