Tutoring

  Fact: College courses are difficult.
Solution: Get help from a TAMUG Tutor. It's FREE!!

TAMUG's Tutoring program offers peer support through course concepts and homework problems in small-group sessions. Students can attend scheduled sessions as needed throughout the semester, but should be prepared to bring specific questions and course materials.

Sessions are offered for typically difficult core curriculum courses such as Chemistry, Math, and Physics, but may be available for other major-specific courses. For a complete list of subjects offered this semester, please see the Tutor roster below.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions are offered for freshman-level Biology and Chemistry courses.
