To set an appointment up with a tutor for one on one tutoring, click the “Schedule a Tutoring Appointment” link in their profile. This will take you to a google calendar where you can create an appointment.

For the Summer 2021 semester, Sara Lynne Schultz and Ian O'Banion are the available for appointments.

Choose the time that works best for you. When creating an appointment please make sure to include your name, your email, your course, and the topic that you need help with in the description. Note that while the time on the calendar says 30 minutes, the session will be 25 minutes in order for the tutor to have time between sessions.

Once you save, an email with be sent to the tutor you chose notifying them of the scheduled appointment. They will then send you a zoom link for your appointment.

UPDATE: Due to overwhelming popularity, we will have to cap the one on one zoom tutoring sessions to two 25-minute sessions a day maximum.

Additionally, please book at appointment no less than 30 minutes in advance so that the staff can be properly prepared.
