Tutoring Appointments

Appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and each session lasts 50 minutes. Tutoring is conducted in pairs (two students per tutor) for math and science courses, and one-on-one for foreign languages and economics. For paired appointments, the first student to register for the appointment chooses the course and professor; any student enrolled in the same course can sign up for the second slot. Each student is permitted up to two traditional appointments per week (use of group tutoring and walk-in tutoring hours do not count towards the two-appointment allowance).

To help everyone get the most out of this resource, we ask that students do the following:

  • Arrive on time and be prepared with relevant notes, textbooks, assignments, and specific questions and goals for the tutoring session
  • Provide their tutor with a copy of the course syllabus
  • Actively engage in each session—ask questions, take notes, and take charge

Make an Appointment

Cancellations

Students who are unable to make their appointment must cancel at least 12 hours in advance. Students who miss three scheduled appointments (either by not showing up or by canceling with less than 12 hours notice) may lose access to tutoring for the semester.

Homework Policy

Please note that it is the ARC’s policy not to go over homework problems during tutoring sessions. Instead, tutors will review concepts and provide practice problems that are similar to those commonly assigned as homework and on exams.
