The Learning Commons provides free appointment and drop-in tutoring with trained peers to help you succeed in your courses.

Sessions will be hosted in-person or online. You can make an individual appointment through Starfish or check out our drop-in schedule at the bottom of the page. Please see our step-by-step instructions for how to make or cancel a tutoring appointment.

All tutoring will be held weeks 2-14 during fall and spring semester. No tutoring will be available during J-term. During spring 2023, sessions will be held from Sunday, Feb. 12, to Friday, May 19. Sessions will not be held during spring break (March 24-April 3) and Easter recess (April 6-10).

Courses offered

Depending on the course, we may only offer individual appointments, but some courses with a high demand also offer drop-in sessions where you can come and go as you like. Please see the list below for complete offerings.

(If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so with at least 24 hours’ notice using the Starfish system and email the tutor to let them know.)

Drop-in tutoring schedule

At drop-in sessions, you can come and go as you like. Several tutors are available, so you often can get individual attention when you need it, or just work with others knowing that tutors are nearby to answer questions. The schedule will be updated week 2 of the fall and spring semesters and is subject to change.
