  2. Click New Appointment
  3. Select the appropriate service
  4. Click your course to see available tutors and time slots
  5. If you have questions, feel free to give us a call or Chat with Us!

If your course is unavailable or you need tutoring assistance right now, try accessing tutor.com through your D2L course page.

You can schedule up to 10 appointments a week.

If you are wanting to schedule back-to-back appointments for the same course, there must be a 2 hour period between the end of the first appointment and the beginning of the second. For example, if you meet with a tutor for MAT-150 from 12pm-1pm, you can schedule another MAT-150 appointment for 3pm on the same day.

If you are wanting to schedule back-to-back appointments for different courses, there is no restriction. For example, you can meet with a tutor for ENG-103 from 9am-9:30am and then meet a tutor for COM-100 from 9:30am-10:30am.

You are welcome to walk-in to meet with a tutor based on availability. Scheduled appointments online or in-person will have priority but do not let that stop you from stopping by to check tutor availability.
