Programs and Services

Fall tutoring takes place in drop-in sessions and through scheduled, weekly individual appointments.


Drop-in Tutoring

Drop-in tutoring – without an appointment – is available during all hours of operation, every quarter. You are welcome to drop in for a maximum of 30 minutes per session, 2 sessions per day. 

Use the gold button at the top of this webpage to join a drop-in session on a first-come, first-served basis. Once you sign in, you will be assigned to a breakout room for a one-on-one session. 


Weekly Individual Tutoring 

In fall, Weekly individual tutoring appointments will be available on a limited basis, depending on tutor availability. Use the gold button at the top of this webpage to sign in for your scheduled weekly session.

You and your tutor will meet via Zoom once a week. During this time, you can work on areas and topics that you need help with and learn strategies to help you study the subject better on your own.

In mid-September, click the button below for the online form to request weekly individual tutoring for Fall Quarter 2021...

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 while they are on a waiting list.

Weekly individual tutoring is primarily available for students enrolled in these courses:

  • EWRT 211, READ 211, LART 250, EWRT 1A
  • ESL 200, ESL 234, ESL 244, ESL 252/3, ESL 262/3, ESL 272/3/4, ESL 5

Priority will be given to students enrolled in English/reading/writing courses below EWRT 2 or ESL 6, and to students using EDC/DSS services. 


Customized Support Activities 

This program is designed to support each student taking "bundled" or "stretch" EWRT 1A with flexible, personalized options. Students log in to the CSA Canvas site to access and track activities.
