SAAB Tutoring Program
SAAB Tutoring is a program of Peer-to-Peer tutoring free for students to use. In this program, students who have excelled in a course are paid to provide free help to students who are currently enrolled in the course. Students are eligible to receive two hours of tutoring from a tutor each week.
The Tutoring Program now uses Ocelot (beta) to request tutors. Follow the link below to find courses with available tutors and send a request.
Contacting a Tutor
Saab Tutors are students too— you will be most successful in setting up appointments with them if you give them as much advance notice as possible. If you would like to request a tutor, Go To Ocelot to browse available courses. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, or to request a tutor in a course that is not currently on Ocelot.

Disclaimer: SAAB Tutoring is not a program that professors can require you to participate in any form. A professor may suggest you get a tutor, but they cannot require you get tutoring through SAAB as part of your grade or as a requirement for a class. Nor is SAAB Tutoring a replacement for the Math Skills Center, Writing Center, Physics Help Center, or Chemistry Help Center. All of these centers are there to help you with those specific subjects and are available every week. If you need help in one of these subject areas it is usually best for you to attend one of these centers and then if you need additional help, come get a SAAB tutor.
