To see if there’s a tutor available for your course and schedule an appointment, download StudyTree from the App Store.

Students can also access the scheduler through the StudyTree website here.

Students can reserve their own appointments up to two weeks in advance. All tutoring is done in small group of 3-4 students. Each session is 50-minutes long. During the session, students have an opportunity to practice problems, clarify concepts, prepare for quizzes and tests, share study strategies.

All LRC 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 Learning Resources Center, Sherman Hall 345. Tutors will message students the specific room number through the StudyTree app. Students can also check with the LRC main office, prior to your appointment, to verify the room number.

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.
