Drop-in Tutoring

Drop-in Tutoring & Virtual Study Hall

What is Drop-in Tutoring?

Sign up for drop-in tutoring with student lead tutors on TutorTrac on a space-available basis. Appointments can be reserved up to two weeks in advance and can be scheduled 24 hours in advance if the time slot is open. Students may sign up for same-day appointments by contacting the virtual front desk depending on availability.

What is Virtual Study Hall?

Virtual study hall is an online space hosted by one of our four student lead tutors (in Science, Math, Nursing, and Languages) where students can log on to study virtually with their peers. If students are enrolled in a course we offer tutoring for and have a question while in the study hall, they can ask the lead tutor hosting. In a virtual study hall, we play productive study music and provide space for students to gather as a community to study together, similar to what students often did while physically on campus. Get your friends and classmates to log in as well, and study while seeing friendly faces.

 

 

 Meet our Lead Tutors (Subject Specialists)

It was helpful having a tutor that could answer any questions I had on the course material. It helped to review difficult topics from class and my tutor showed me the easiest way to understand the topics.
