How to use tutoring

  • In person: Visit any of our campus locations for study support during our open hours. Students are encouraged to study in our space and notify a tutor when they are ready to ask a question. Expect to work with a tutor for about 15-20 minutes to support one homework question or concept on a first come, first serve basis. Students may continue to work in the space and visit with a tutor for additional sessions as time and availability permit.
  • eTutoring: Students meet with tutors in a Zoom room with up to 3 other students on a first come, first serve basis. Sessions are designed to support each student with one concept or question. Students can return to the queue for support with additional questions. Access eTutoring.

Students can book a 25 minute tutoring session (30 minutes for RWC) to clarify concepts or get additional support with a homework question or writing assignment. Choose to meet with a tutor on campus or remotely through Zoom. See below for information about campus locations.
