Help us plan for the fall semester! Fill out the Early Bird Tutoring Request Form.

Students who are registered with the Office of Student Disability Services and need accommodations (for example, an ASL interpreter) need to email Ira Fabri (Assistant Director of Tutoring) at fabri@umbc.edu as much in advance as possible.

Tutoring will start September 9th. We will contact you close to that day to update you on your request.

If you have any questions about tutoring, contact Ira Fabri (Assistant Director of Tutoring) at fabri@umbc.edu.

 

Who are our Tutors?

All of our tutors are UMBC students who have taken the class(es) they support and succeeded. They have been recommended by faculty and received formal training.
All tutoring takes place in the Academic Success Center Sherman Hall 345. Students will check with the main office (Sherman 345), prior to the appointment, to verify the room number.

 

Why should I use Academic Success Center tutoring services?

  • Students who go to tutoring tell us that they better understand course concepts and are able to apply new techniques they learn in tutoring later on their own.
  • Tutoring is an appointment you make with yourself to study and practice at least once a week.
  • In order to make the most of your tutoring session, prepare for it by bringing concepts and problems you want your tutor to work on with you.
