Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a tutor?

Go to www.utica.edu/tutoring. In the left hand column, under Tutee Resources, click on Request a Tutor. After completed, the form will be directly sent to the coordinator.

When should I fill out a tutor request?

Students should be pro-active; come in before you need the help. A tutor request will generate a search for a tutor if there is not one already for the requested class. So, the earlier you request a tutor, the shorter you will wait.

How long do I have to wait before I can get a tutor?

Requests are filled depending on the availability of tutors and every attempt is made to assign tutors as quickly as possible. Students requesting tutors should allow a minimum of two weeks before inquiring about the status of their request.

Can I get a tutor for all of my course?

Yes, a student may request as many tutors as they need.

How much does tutoring cost?

Tutoring is free for all UC students.

Are there tutors for every subject?

The tutoring department attempts to hire tutors for a variety of classes. In the even that we do not have a tutor for a requested class, we will try to recruit one for you.

What should I bring to a tutoring session?

You should bring all the materials with you to a session that you bring to class. The more resources you have with you, the more you will get out of the session. Remember, the tutor is not required to bring any materials with them.

If I am late, will the tutor wait for me?

Tutors are asked to wait 15 minutes for you to show up. If you are running late you should call your tutor to let them know.

What should I do if I need to miss a tutoring session?

If you know that you are going to miss a tutoring session in advance you should contact your tutor. Either send an email, or call if it is less than 24 hours in advance.

What should I do if I need help in between sessions with my tutor?

When your tutor is not available and you need help you can visit the Tutor Table, Math & Science Center or the Writing Center in the UC library. Tutors are there to help students at any time throughout the day. Also, your professor is a good resource for help.
