Tutoring Program

tutoring

The School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program is pleased to offer free one-on-one tutoring to Rutgers students. Tutoring is available to all New Brunswick undergraduates during the fall and spring semesters. Through the SASHP Tutoring Program, students in the SAS Honors Program volunteer their time and knowledge to tutor Rutgers students needing help in a wide range of academic subjects.  The Tutoring Program tutors choose the subjects in which they can offer assistance and the time availabilities they wish to contribute to the program.


 

  All Rutgers-New Brunswick Students Can Use the One-on-One Tutoring Program!

Want to make the most of your tutoring experience? Follow these simple steps for academic success:

  1. Go to class, talk to your professor, and attend office hours to discuss any problems you might be having in the course. Tutoring is meant to supplement instruction—not take the place of your class.
  2. Arrive at your tutoring session on time and check-in with the Learning Center’s staff. If you must cancel your session after business hours or within 48 hours of your appointment, please contact the appropriate Learning Resource Center.
  3. Be positive! Learning new or challenging material can be stressful at first, but remaining positive allows you to fully concentrate on the task at hand.
  4. Take an active role in your learning. Come to the tutoring session prepared with your class notes, textbook, and any necessary tools (e.g., calculator, pencil, pen).
  5. Ask questions—lots of them! A tutor is not a lecturer, and collaborative environments are often the most successful ones for learning.

Please visit the RU Tutoring Scheduler to make an appointment. Students may use this service twice per week and schedule appointments up to two weeks in advance. Tutoring for Spring 2016 will begin the week of February 8. 

To make an appointment, log in with your NetID and password. Select your course and hit the "List View" button at the bottom. You will then see all available tutors, with times and locations. Select the one you want, confirm the time and course, and make the appointment. You will receive a confirmation email with the appointment details (if you do not receive an email, the appointment was not processed).

Students are also encouraged to visit any of the Rutgers Learning Centers on each campus for group tutoring, academic coaching and other assistance in their courses. Their locations are:
