Requesting a Tutor

Requesting A Tutor

Students who desire tutoring in a particular class should initially seek assistance from professors and departmental assistants. Peer tutoring for most courses is available for free to all undergraduate students in need of additional academic support for up to seven (7) hours of tutoring. If students would like additional hours for tutoring, they can appeal by talking to a professional in the ACCESS office. All tutors have received a recommendation from faculty and have taken the course they are tutoring and received a B or higher for their final grade.

Tutoring is available throughout the semester, but early tutor requests provide the best opportunity for assistance. Professors will be notified when a student receives a tutor in their course. (The Tutor Program Coordinator must be contacted if a student does not want the Professor notified.)

How to Request a Peer Tutor

Undergraduate students can request a peer tutor, if available, for weekly one-hour sessions (up to seven (7) hours per semester). Students MUST be registered in the course for which they request tutoring.

Step 1: Complete Tutor Request Form

You may either complete and submit the form online, or you may download a hard copy.

Step 2: Notification of Tutor Assignment

ACCESS will notify the tutee of the tutor assignment through campus mail within three (3) working days after the forms are received. The assignment letter will give the tutor′s name, phone number and email address. The tutor will contact the tutee within two (2) days to set up a tutoring session. If a tutor is not readily available, the tutee will receive an email regarding the progress of the search.
