To schedule an appointment, please use the tutoring@ system to locate the time and tutor that will work best for you. Through this system, you can schedule appointments and manage your appointments.

Please note, once you schedule an appointment you are responsible for keeping the appointment. Should a conflict arise, you will need to cancel the appointment as soon as possible. Appointments not canceled within two hours of the start of the session, will be considered a missed appointment. If you accrue two missed appointments in an academic year, you will lose your ability to schedule tutoring appointments and must rely solely on walk-in options.


Walk-In Tutoring

You are always welcome to stop by the Learning Assistance for assistance. During the hours listed below, the LAC will have tutors available to assist you. However, please note this service is provided on a first-come, first-served basis. When you walk-in, you may have to wait before seeing a tutor.

Friday - 9 am to 4 pm
Saturday - 10 am to 2 pm
