Academic Departments

Each college of RIT has its own process for providing tutoring for students enrolled in its classes. Students should first check with their academic department to determine what tutor services are available. Students should contact the course professor or the program staff member listed on the college's website. If you're not sure whom to contact you can email Tutor@rit.edu for assistance.

Tutor for Hire

RIT provides a Craigslist-like resource called Tutor for Hire where tutors post ads for their individual services. Potential tutees can also post requests for help.

Study Strategies Resources

It's not uncommon for students to come to college without study strategies. Building solid studying and organizational skills can be an effective way to tackle a rigorous course load. RIT offers a variety of study skills resources, many of which are free, through the Academic Support Center. We recommend starting with:

  • An appointment with an ASC Student Support Specialist.
  • Using resources from the DIY Academic Tool Kit
