Individual appointments let you work one-on-one with a tutor at a pre-arranged time inside our center. Typically, individual appointments are scheduled once a week.  This fee-based tutoring is scheduled as semester long, consecutive weekly appointments where you are pre-paying for blocks of five 50 minute tutoring sessions.

There is a $65 fee for five 50 minute sessions. Some campus programs cover tutoring fees. Contact us for more information.

How do I cancel an appointment?
