How to Sign Up for Tutoring:

  1. Be sure you are signed into Box before you sign up for a session (you will not be able to access the sheet without being logged in).
  2. Sign up for the day and time that best fits your schedule
  3. Make sure to note if you will be on Zoom

When completing the sign-up forms, please add your name to the sign-up list for your preferred tutoring session. If the sign-up list is full for that day, please select a different day or email them to find an alternate time.

Please keep in mind:

    • Your TAs and faculty should be your first point of contact for questions and assistance related to your 811 and 813 coursework. If you need additional support, you may sign up for tutoring with our tutors. This service is supplemental and not a replacement for working with your professors and TAs.
    • Tutors are here to help with concepts, not deliverables. As such, tutors will only review problem sets once they have been submitted for a grade.
    • Up to 8 students may sign up for each tutoring session.
    • If you’re unable to meet at the times listed below, you may contact the tutors directly to request another meeting time (this is not guaranteed, but they will try to accommodate students when possible).
