Tutoring Program

The Student Success Center offers free individual and group tutoring for undergraduate students in some of Virginia Tech's highest-demand 1000- and 2000-level courses. Our program has received all three levels of International Tutor Training Program Certification through the College Reading and Learning Association.

COVID-19 Updates

Beginning Monday, March 23, the Student Success Center’s tutoring services will be offered online instead of in person.

Students can still make, modify, and cancel individual appointments on Navigate as usual. Review sessions are still drop-in and can be located at the Zoom links listed below.

We are in the process of developing additional support options including FAQ pages, subject guides, and asynchronous tutoring. We hope to have these new resources ready by Fall 2020. They will be announced here and over e-mail when they are available.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we make this challenging transition together.

 

Review Sessions

Our tutors host drop-in Q&A sessions for some of our most popular courses. No registration is required, but we do recommend preparing some questions and attending as much of the review session as you can. All review sessions will now take place over Zoom; please see the schedule below for the Zoom links.
