Tutoring Program

The Office of Student Affairs offers a tutoring program for students who are struggling academically, or who have missed a substantial amount of class time due to illness or other personal problems.

Prior to requesting a tutor, it is highly advised that students visit class teaching assistants FIRST. 

  • Our free, confidential tutoring service is open to all JD and Graduate students who have demonstrated need for tutoring.
  • These sessions are designed to assist students who are experiencing specific difficulties in a particular subject, or who would like guidance with respect to study, outlining or exam-taking skills.
  • Tutors are fellow students who have demonstrated academic excellence in an academic area(s) and whenever possible, students are assigned to tutors who had the same professor for the course.
  • Tutoring takes place at mutually convenient times, usually 2-3 hours per week.
  • Due to the limited number of available tutors, students may request tutoring for a maximum of two courses.

Please note: because we rely on student volunteers to act as tutors, we may not be able to assign a tutor in every case, but we will make every effort to do so.  Requests for tutors in more advanced classes can be difficult to fulfill. If we are unable to find you a tutor, we encourage you to speak with your professor and his or her teaching assistant about your specific difficulties.
