Individual Tutoring

ind-tutoring-program-icon-realWhat is Individual Tutoring?

*See note below about Summer 2021 support* Individual tutoring is tailored, personalized 1-1 support for students in their courses. Undergraduate tutors will give you the space to improve your comfort with the material by prompting you to express your knowledge and guide you on improving topics you are struggling with. Students can sign up for one-time individual appointments via Tutor Trac, but these appointments are very limited. You can always ask your Small Group Tutor if they provide Individual sessions or check the Classes Supported page to see what kinds of support your courses have. 

If you would like to know how to sign up for these services, click the Tutor Trac button below (signing in with your Gold ID).

Courses with Individual Tutoring Summer 2021

Summer 2021 Update: LSS will be pausing the Individual Tutoring progam due to short-staffing and low bandwidth. If you are affiliated with the DRC, you may still be able to request accommodations services with LSS for Summer 2021 — please follow the instructions in our Accommodations for Services page to learn more.


For all Individual tutoring sessions, the tutor will hold 45-minute individual tutoring appointments each week. Students need to sign-up ahead of time and can sign up for more than one appointment throughout the quarter. All sessions are accessible through Tutor Trac.

In individual tutoring, students can seek support with specific homework problems and concept questions to continue to increase their confidence with the course material. Tutors prompt the student to recall their prior knowledge and guide them through their critical thinking of topics.
