Tutoring

Tutor placements will begin on Monday, September 16th and the last day to request a tutor for the fall semester is Wednesday, November 20th. 

Free one-on-one peer tutoring is available in most courses and is provided upon request, referral, and in consultation with faculty. Tutoring is not designed to help students with specific homework assignments, but rather to enhance their overall learning and understanding of course material. In addition to strengthening your understanding of course material, tutors will assist you in identifying subject areas to study or practice, discuss effective participation methods in the class, and convey new study techniques.

To be eligible for tutoring, students must:

  • Attend departmental help sessions (if available) or attend at least one SI session per week (if available) unless there are extenuating circumstances
  • Consistently attend classes, unless there are extenuating circumstances

We encourage students to submit tutor requests as early in the semester as possible.  If you need help in a specific course, please submit a request!  

Biology, Chemistry, Math, Norwegian, and Statistics Tutoring:

Biology, Chemistry, Math, Norwegian, and Statistics tutoring is available in the CAAS office (TOH153), Tomson Hall 100 and Tomson Hall 175 (Norwegian only) on a regularly set schedule starting Sunday, September 15th. Students can sign-up for up to five 20-minute tutoring slots per week via the Tutoring Google Calendar. Drop-ins are welcome if space is available. In courses that have SI, students must attend at least one SI session per week throughout the semester to be eligible for tutoring unless there are extenuating circumstances.  

These tutoring calendars are available to all students enrolled in these courses.  

If requesting a tutor in a course not listed above please submit a tutor request form.   

All Other Academic Tutor Requests:

Tutoring sessions are typically once per week for an hour or twice a week for 45-minutes, depending on student need.  Students who are enrolled in courses with SI will be paired with a tutor once per week.
