Academic Tutoring

The Tutoring Program supports select introductory STEM and language courses. A list of supported courses is available on the Supported Courses webpage.

Group Tutoring

Request Group Tutoring 

The Tutoring Program aims to provide small peer learning groups that foster a deepening of students' understanding of course content.  To achieve this goal, tutors strive to create inclusive learning communities that meet the needs of students through tailored lesson plans, group activities (i.e., group problem-solving), and peer feedback.

Submit tutoring requests during the Early Request period:

  1. Students can submit requests for group tutoring beginning Monday, September 19. 
  2. Group tutoring sessions are scheduled between the hours of 10 a.m. - 10 p.m. ET Sunday-Thursday.  We do our best to offer various group sessions, but students may need to alter their schedules to accommodate the available tutoring sessions.

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

If you have questions, please contact Dean Janet Peters, Associate Director of Academic Tutoring & Assistant Dean of Curricular Support.

Please note: The Academic Tutoring Program does not support all courses. Tutoring is a weekly commitment.
The Tutoring Program does not support private tutoring. 

Due to the demand for tutoring, students are automatically dropped after two unexcused absences. Students on the waitlist will receive an email when a seat is available.
