Our Mission:

We want you to learn the material well enough to pass your exams. This means that our tutors will work to make you more independent. They won’t check your work for you or do your work for you. They will support your efforts and offer suggestions for improving study skills and/or clarification of course content.

How to maximize your time with a tutor:
Bring your notes and text book.
Try to attempt solving the problem to show the tutor your progress and where you have questions.
Our Tutoring Model

For in-person tutoring:
No appointments necessary; all tutoring is on a first-come, first served basis. Be prepared for your session with questions and work to show your tutor. You can sign up as often as needed, but each session is limited due to the volume of students we serve.

For online tutoring:

Take Home Tests and Quizzes:
Tutors cannot directly assist with take home tests or quizzes unless it is clearly specified on the test or quiz that help from a tutor is allowed.  

Please make appointment at the Accudemia homepagenew window.

Types of tutoring sessions:

You can schedule 45-minute appointments with our tutors in person or virtually.

  • In-person: In-person tutoring sessions are those where you meet with a tutor on site in ECEC Room 112. These sessions are by appointment; however, every attempt will be made to accommodate walk-ins based on available staffing. Please arrive 5 minutes before your appointment time to check-in.

  • Virtual (Zoom): "Zoom" or "online" appointments are ones where you speak directly to a tutor, and the tutor provides feedback in real-time. At the time of your appointment, log in to Accudemia, open your appointment by clicking on it, and click the Zoom session link in "Location." Please have your assignment, assignment instructions, and any prior feedback from your professor available by your appointment time.

  • Virtual (Written Feedback): "Written Feedback" appointments are ones where you DO NOT have to be present and DO NOT speak directly to your tutor. Please upload your assignment, your professor's written assignment instructions, and any prior feedback from your professor at least one hour before your appointment start time. These documents are necessary for your tutor to be able to provide written feedback. You will be notified via email when your written feedback is available from Accudemia.
