General Tutoring Service Guidelines:

  • Tutors provide strategies to help students move forward with their learning process. Tutoring is never a substitute for missed lectures, incomplete readings, or meetings with a professor or professional.
  • Tutors are peer CSUDH students who cover various subjects. They are scheduled throughout the center’s business hours.
  • Services are all group sessions.
  • If a student has a SdRC accommodation, SdRC will notify us of the accommodation. Accommodations will be scheduled by TLTC professional staff.

Drop-in Group Tutoring Guidelines

  • To access in-center drop-in tutoring, students must visit LIB-1575 and check in at the front desk.
  • Students are assigned to tutors on a first come first serviced basis.
  • Sessions are always group sessions.

Online Tutoring Appointment Guidelines

  • Online group tutoring appointments can be scheduled through TSC.
  • If tutoring subjects and times do not meet a student’s needs, in-center tutors provide more subjects and service hours.
  • Sessions are held through Zoom.
  • Students will need an adequate location with minimal distractions to log into their session, reliable internet connection, and a connected device with a camera and microphone.
  • Appointments can be scheduled up to a week in advance.
  • One appointment can be scheduled at a time.
  • If students are 10 minutes late to their appointment, they may need to reschedule.
