How to Get Tutoring

Using the Scheduler

All of our tutoring services are run through the Scheduler, also accessible by clicking the blue button at the bottom of the Academics page of Inside F&M. In the Scheduler, you can use the drop-down menu right below the Q&SC logo to select which type of tutoring you want:

 

Weekly Tutoring

Meet one-on-one with a tutor each week

The Scheduler displays the courses and tutors each day down the left side, with that tutor's availability indicated by the white boxes. Click one at a time that works for you and a window will pop up to set up the appointment. At your first weekly appointment, you and your tutor will find a time to meet each subsequent week and the tutor will set that up in the Scheduler.

 

Drop-Ins

Just walk in, no advance appointment necessary

The Scheduler displays the courses, locations, and tutors down the left, with the drop-in hours indicated by the white boxes. If you are coming to tutoring in-person, just go to the room indicated during drop-in hours and the tutor will help you out; remotely, click on any of the white squares in the drop-in session (don't worry too much about the precise time) and a window will pop up containing the Zoom link.

 

QuEST

Tutor-led activities to help you master the content

Just like for drop-ins, the Scheduler lists the rooms and times for all QuEST sessions; you can simply show up in person, and the appointment creation window has the Zoom link.

 

More detailed information on all of our tutoring services can be found using the links at the bottom of the page.
