Weekly Individual Tutoring (WIT)

Weekly Individual Tutoring appointments are available in fall, winter, and spring quarter on a limited basis (according to tutor availability). You and your tutor will meet in the WRC via Zoom, on the SSC Resources Canvas page once a week.

Depending on tutor availability and budget constraints, we may not be able to provide a Weekly Individual Tutor for each student who requests one, but we will do our best. It helps to apply early in the first week of the quarter.  Students requesting Weekly Individual Tutoring after the first week of the quarter will be asked to use Drop In Tutoring will be placed on a waiting list.
