Tutoring


Announcement: There will be NO business or MAT 1035 drop-in tutoring on 04/11/2024 due to events on campus. Thank you.


The last day of tutoring for Spring 2024 will be Wednesday, May 1st at 8:30 pm, after regularly scheduled in-person drop-in tutoring. There will be NO ZOOM from 8 - 10 pm. Thank you.

The last day to request tutoring for a course we do not currently support is March 19th, 2024 (six weeks from the last day of classes).

As onboarding new tutors takes a minimum of two weeks, University Tutorial Services is unable to support the hiring of new tutors past that point. Thank you for your understanding.


Tutoring Options

Tutors are:

  • Undergraduate students at Appalachian
  • Approved by the academic department relative to your course
  • Trained in learning skills and has demonstrated proficiency in these areas

Drop-In Tutoring

If you are unsure about the need for a regular appointment and just want a setting to work on your assignments and ask questions as they arise, you may want to consider attending Drop-In Tutoring either in person or via Zoom.

Drop-In Tutoring has posted hours and does not require you to commit to regular attendance.

LEAD Tutoring

LEAD Tutoring in Chemistry and Physics is a supplemental instruction program designed to help students gain a better understanding of the course content, improve study skills, meet new people and improve grades. Studies show that students who attend this form of tutoring regularly can earn up to a letter grade higher than those who choose not to attend.

Attend LEAD Tutoring to get together with your classmates and compare notes, discuss important concepts, develop strategies for studying the subject, and test yourself before an exam.
