How do I get tutoring?

Tutoring is a service we offer at the Learning Center. There are a few basic things you need to know before signing up for tutoring. Please see below:Tutoring is NOT available during the summer and is ONLY available on the main Gainesville campus Monday through Thursday, 9am till 5pm by appointment.

  • Tutoring is Free to you, but the Learning Center does pay the tutors for their time. It is like you are getting an unofficial scholarship when you take advantage of tutoring.
  • Tutoring is NOT available during the summer and is ONLY available on the main Gainesville campus Monday through Thursday, 9am till 5pm by appointment.
  • Tutoring is by appointment only at the Learning Center. Unlike the Math Spa and the Writing Center, tutoring here is by appointment only. (Contact Crystal Ball for tutoring appointments; see Staff Contact Information.)
  • Tutoring is done by professionals at the Learning Center, not by peers. There is no peer tutoring at the Learning Center; we hire degreed professionals who have experience in the subject matter.
  • Tutoring is important! When you commit to tutoring, you have an obligation to be sure to make all of your tutoring sessions and to be on time. Failure to give advanced notice of multiple missed appointments may result in a suspension of tutoring services for the rest of the semester. Students should be prepared for their tutoring sessions and should treat their tutors with respect.
  • Time is of the essence! Tutoring is provided based on tutor availability. If you ask about tutoring at the beginning of the semester or just prior to the beginning, you will have a greater chance of getting tutoring due to availability issues.
  • Tutoring is prioritized by need with the order being as follows: Learning Disability Students, International Students, and Enrolled Students who do not have Learning Disabilities and who are not International.
  • Tutoring is limited to 2 hours maximum per subject matter per student. We operate on a strict budget and must have limits in place in order to keep in the parameters of our operating budget.
