A week is defined as Sunday to Saturday. Exceptions to the limit may be considered; please contact SAAB Tutoring for approval,

  • Tutoring for languages takes place in the Keck Interactive Learning Center (ILC) in Miller 211 or in Watzek Library if the ILC is closed. Tutoring for math, biology, chemistry, economics, etc. takes place near the SQRC in Howard Hall or in Watzek Library.

Cancellation & Missed Appointments

  • Students must notify their peer tutor at least 24 hours prior to the start of your coordinated tutoring time.
  • Students who miss three scheduled appointments (either by not showing up or by cancelling with less than 24 hours’ notice) may lose access to participating in the tutoring program for that course for the remainder of the semester and must consult with SAAB Tutoring.

Academic Integrity 

  • Students using  SAAB Tutoring are protected under FERPA. Tutors cannot publicly acknowledge that you are a tutee’s tutor and are not able to discuss with anyone outside of SAAB Tutoring that identifies the tutee. 

Electronic Tutoring
