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

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, and share study strategies.

Are drop-ins possible?

Yes! Come by the LRC and if a tutor is available for a reasonable amount of time you will be able to join a session even if you don’t have an appointment.

No tutor for your class?

Fill out the Tutor Request Form. We will contact you if we identify a tutor.

Do you need a weekly appointment?

If you would like to have a recurring appointment with a tutor, email Ira Fabri at fabri@umbc.edu.

Accommodation requests

Students who are registered with the Office of Student Disability Services and need accommodations (for example, one-on-one appointments or an ASL interpreter) can request them through the Tutor Request Form.

Who are LRC Tutors?

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. Students will check with the LRC main office, prior to the 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.

Sessions are meant to be tutor-led study groups of up to four students. Sessions will take place in Tutoring Rooms on the 3rd floor of Sherman Hall. These rooms are outfitted with a computer, board, paper, and writing utensils. Students should come prepared with books, notes, and a few questions they would like addressed.
