Tutoring

We provide tutorial support for many lower-level undergraduate courses to help students succeed in the classroom.

How does tutoring work?

Tutorial services are provided free-of-charge and depend upon the availability of a qualified tutor. Students are assisted on a first-come, first-served basis and are provided group appointment-based or group drop-in tutoring, depending on the course.

Group tutoring appointments are scheduled weekly and limited to four students for up to one appointment per week, per course. Sessions are held in the Tutoring and Learning Center (Cook Library, 5th Floor) and other approved campus locations. 

All tutoring sessions for Fall 2019 end 12/05

Which courses offer tutoring?

We currently offer tutoring in the following disciplines:

How do I schedule tutoring?

Visit TutorTrac™ to see available appointments and schedule a session. You can also view the schedules for Peer-Assisted Learning Session (PALS) for drop-in sessions. 

How do I prepare for tutoring?

Before attending a tutoring session, please come prepared with your course syllabus, book(s), and specific questions. Note: tutoring sessions can be canceled if you come unprepared. Tutors will assist you, but not complete your work for you. 

How do I cancel a tutoring session?

Students unable to attend their appointments should cancel the appointment online using TutorTrac™, in person or by phone (410-704-2291) at least 24 hours before the scheduled appointment. More than two missed appointments or cancellations with less than 24 hours notice, will result in being unable to schedule future appointments during the semester.

If you no longer need tutorial assistance, or drop or withdraw from a course, please inform your tutor and the Tutoring and Learning Center immediately. Other students may be waiting for help.
