Tutoring

Group Tutoring

Group tutoring is offered for introductory courses in science, math, economics, and statistics. Students are assigned to small groups that meet weekly to review important or difficult topics covered in class that week. Tutors have either taken the course or proven competency, and have been trained by the Academic Support Staff.

Group tutoring is offered Sundays 2-10 pm and Mondays-Thursdays 6-10 pm. We will do our best to place you in a section that fits your preferred times, but you might need to alter your schedule to accommodate the available tutoring sessions. Questions? Email tutoring@brown.edu

Drop-in Tutoring

Drop-in tutoring for science courses is offered at the Science Center on Tuesdays from 8-10 pm and Thursdays from 6-8 pm. Students can receive assistance with quick questions in introductory and intermediate biology, chemistry, and physics. Visit the Science Center's website

Language Tutoring

Individual tutoring is available for introductory and intermediate Arabic, Chinese, French, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish. To apply for one-on-one language tutoring, fill out the top half of the individual tutoring form and ask your course's language coordinator, instructor, or TA to complete and sign the bottom portion of the form. Once approved, students may schedule up to two tutoring hours per week. Language tutoring sessions are available Sundays 2-10 pm and Mondays through Thursdays 6-10 pm. Tutors and tutees must meet in the designated tutoring rooms during these times.

Students in other language courses are encouraged to meet with their instructors for extra assistance.

Individual Tutoring

Except for students in introductory and intermediate language courses, students who wish to apply for individual tutoring for a specific course must be participating in group tutoring for that course, if it is offered. Students apply for individual tutoring by submitting the form contained in the PDF below. Students should fill in Section A, print out the form, and bring it to the course instructor (not a TA) to complete Section B. Completed application forms may be delivered to J. Walter Wilson, room 213C, inside the Writing Center. Students will be notified within one week if a tutor is available.
