Tutoring is available for many chemistry classes. If you are interested in becoming a tutor, please see details about that process here.

To be eligible for tutoring services, a student must meet the following requirements:

  • attend lectures and recitations regularly
  • submit problem sets
  • attend office hours

To receive tutoring services:

  • Complete an online Tutor Request Form by selecting the appropriate link from the list of classes below.
  • A tutor will be assigned to you via email within two business days.
  • Discuss any areas of difficulty you are having with your TA. (Suggested.)

There is no fee for this service. Tutors are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the semester. Please fill out and submit the form corresponding to your class number (below) to request tutoring services. Priority for tutoring services will be given to students with a 'C' average or below. However, you are encouraged to apply for tutoring if you receive a 'C' or below on any exam. Once you are deemed eligible for tutoring, you will remain eligible throughout the term. We are generally able to accomodate all requests for tutoring as our availability allows.
