Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction


Tutoring is a free university service available to you if you need assistance in 100-300 level courses. You'll meet with tutors one-on-one and get the extra help you need in your class. If you did well in a class and are looking for an opportunity to help other students, you can also apply to become a tutor (see below).

Tutoring requests

The Tutoring Office is no longer accepting tutor requests for the Spring 2024 semester. Please check back in August to submit requests for the Fall 2024 semester! Feel free to reach out to with any tutoring-related questions.

    Supplemental Instruction

    Supplemental Instruction is often provided if you are enrolled in a historically challenging class. Supplemental Instruction (SI) includes a series of review sessions, led by an SI leader, who prepares a review from each lecture the instructor gives. If you did well in a class and are looking for an opportunity to help other students, you can also apply to become an SI leader.
