Tutoring

The Campus Learning Center at Virginia Commonwealth University offers appointment, drop-in and group tutoring in undergraduate courses across the disciplines.

Our tutors are all current students who have successfully completed all the courses they tutor. Additionally, tutors participate in a comprehensive training program to learn how to strategically assist the students they work with. Tutoring services focus on helping students learn skills and strategies they can utilize in their individual study.

Appointment tutoring

Appointments provide the widest variety of subject and discipline options. All appointments must be made in person on the first floor of Hibbs Hall at 900 Park Ave. Ask at our front desk if you’d like more information about a specific course.

  • Students can have individual, one-hour sessions with a peer tutor.
  • Students can schedule appointment tutoring one hour per week, per subject, for up to two subjects. If a student requests assistance beyond two appointments per week, a  meeting with an academic coach is required.
  • Appointments must be made at least two days in advance.
  • Recurring appointments are available after the first session.

Drop-in tutoring

We offer drop-in tutoring on a first-come, first-served basis.

Drop-in tutoring schedule

Drop-in tutoring for final exams

  • This service is not an individual tutoring session.
  • Students can use this service as many times per week as needed and there is no maximum number of hours.
  • Drop-in tutoring works best when used with appointment tutoring for students seeking more individualized learning.

  • Students must be in the same section of the course.
  • Students can schedule group tutoring one hour per week, per subject, for up to two subjects.
  • Appointments must be made in person, at least two days in advance.
