Individual Tutoring

Individual tutoring will resume in Fall 2018

 


 

Free one-on-one peer tutoring* is available for many Princeton courses--most commonly for introductory courses in the natural sciences, math, economics, and foreign languages**. Individual tutoring may be especially helpful if you feel like you need help with specific parts of a course, or if your previous experience did not include preparation in an essential topic that you need for a class. The aim of tutoring is to help students develop the skills and strategies they need to independently and successfully engage in the course.

If there is no appointment available, please check the calendar again after 3 pm the day of the appointment as a spot may have opened up.  You can also attend McGraw Center's Group Study Hall. Open appointments are also sent out to college listserves if time permits.

* Academic Regulations

Please note that students may work only with tutors in the Princeton undergraduate tutoring program and with Fellows in the Writing Center. Students are in violation of University regulations if they engage the services of private tutors (see 2.4.5 Tutoring in Rights, Rules, Responsibilities of Students).

** Individual Tutoring in Courses not supported at the McGraw Center

Tutoring in language courses, as well as in some introductory STEM and computational courses not supported by McGraw Study Halls or Individual Tutoring, may be available through the peer tutoring program in the residential colleges.  To find out more about this resource, contact your residential college Director of Studies.

If you cannot find an appointment for a McGraw Center Tutoring supported course (offered during the semester by Study Hall or Individual), and feel that you definitely need an appointment, please contact McGraw’s Assistant Director, Geneva Stein, with your name and the course you need help with and she will try to find an available tutor. Since our tutors are students too, there is no guarantee that a tutor will be available.
