Tutoring is available for a multitude of U of A courses! One of the best ways to help students connect with a tutor is when a faculty member recommends tutoring.

Students can schedule in-person or online appointments for all supported courses, as well as opt for group appointments or attend Study Halls targetting specific courses.

Our course list is updated each semester to showcase all courses we support, so you can provide students with the most up-to-date information.
