We have two types of tutoring available: open hours and appointments. Appointments can be made up to three weeks in advance but no less than 24 hours before the appointment.
Open hours for the various subjects are held throughout the week and no appointment is necessary. These hours are posted on the Peer Tutoring Calendar. The amount of time available will depend on student need. If there are other students waiting, the tutor will spend 15 minutes with students in the order that they arrive until their tutoring hours are completed. If there are no other students waiting, the tutor may meet with the student for a maximum of one hour or until another student arrives for services.
Scheduled appointments are one-on-one activities available in 15 minute segments to a maximum of one hour. Online appointments aren't available at this time. Please come in or contact the us at 510.430.3360 for an appointment.
Each student is eligible for up to 3 hours of tutoring per subject per week. However, after each appointment the student will be asked to fill in an evaluation form before attending a second appointment.
It helps to be prepared for your appointment so you get the most help in the allotted time. Here are some hints.
When attending an appointment for the very first time, please fill out this New Appointment form in advance of that appointment with as much detail as possible. Please bring it with you to your appointment.
If this is your second, or other appointment, with the same peer tutor for the same course, please fill out the Continuing Appointment form. Please bring it with you to your appointment.
