CHECK WHAT STUDENTS THINK OF THE TUTORING LAB

  • Feeling a lot more confident in the material after my visit!

  • K. is a magnificent tutor. Her help is invaluable! I will surely come back in the future. Thanks!

  • She's great and patient, even with my headaches in ECON   
  • The advice given was very helpful and eased my testing anxiety. 
  • The Tutor is very knowledgeable and helpful. I am much more confident in the material.  
  • When I first walked in, I had no idea what I was doing. Now, I feel like I have a much better understanding of what I have learned thus far.

PEER TUTOR REFERRAL

For courses not offered in the Lab, we have a referral system. After receiving a request, we will try to identify a peer tutor for that class. Please be advised that the recruiting process might take up to two weeks and sometimes longer, so submit your request early on. The ASAC cannot guarantee a tutor will be found for every class. There is a modest fee for this option, payable directly to the peer tutor at the session. To request a peer tutor for a class not offered in the Lab, please fill out the peer tutor request form.
