Types of Tutoring

  1. In-person: In-person tutoring takes place with a faculty, professional, or student tutors on one of the 3 Riverland campuses. Most are in the Tutoring Services room N104 in the Austin east building. This is directly across from the cafeteria. When you sign up for an appointment, please choose "in-person."

How to make a Tutoring Appointment

  1. Online: Online appointments are offered through the week and on some nights and weekends. When you sign up for an appointment, choose online. Then, your tutor will shortly send you an email with the Zoom link. Please make sure you are familiar with zoom, have a reliable internet connection, and have a speaker, microphone, and camera that works. Arriving 5-10 minutes early is a great idea to make sure all of the technology is working.
