Tutoring at RIT

RIT offers a number of excellent free tutoring resources.

Each college 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. Contact the course professor or the program staff member listed on the college’s website.

If you’re not sure whom to contact, email Tutor@rit.edu for assistance.
