Walk-In Tutoring

Students are welcome to come to the center to meet with a tutor anytime during our hours. Walk-In sessions are given on a first-come, first-serve basis. If a tutor cannot see you at that time, we encourage you to set up an appointment for a later time.

Online tutoring is available for all students. Instructions can be found on the Online Tutoring page. Online sessions are not as thorough, but can be more convenient.
