The Office of Student Affairs offers a free, confidential tutoring program for students who are struggling academically. These sessions are particularly designed to assist students who are experiencing specific difficulties in a particular subject, but they can sometimes assist with general skills such as exam-taking or outlining.

  • Tutors are fellow students who have demonstrated academic excellence in the area(s) they tutor, and whenever possible, students are assigned to tutors who had the same professor for the course being tutored.
  • 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, it may not be possible to assign a tutor in every case. Requests for tutors in more advanced classes can be particularly difficult to fulfill. If a tutor is not available, we encourage you to speak with your professor and her or his teaching assistant about your specific difficulties. 

If you have questions regarding tutoring or academic support, please contact the Office of Student Affairs at or call (212) 998-6658.
