Tutoring at RIT
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.
Tutoring through NTID
NLC tutors will provide online tutoring for NTID English and Mathematics classes. NTID-supported students taking courses in the other colleges of RIT should contact their faculty tutor for help or contact your support coordinator, if you don’t know your tutor.
Tutor for Hire
RIT provides a resource through CampusGroups called Tutor for Hire. Students can post free ads offering tutor help. Prices and logistics are negotiated by the students themselves.
The Academic Success Center provides weekly trainings to connect tutors on campus. Training topics this semester include Communication and Vocabulary, Challenges to Group Tutoring, Brain-Based Learning and more! To review our schedule and to register, visit Tutor Training.
The RIT Writing Center is staffed by a team of undergraduate, graduate, and faculty writing consultants with writing expertise in STEM and Humanities disciplines. They offer free one-on-one or group consultations for students in any course, with a special focus on First-year Writing (FYW) and Writing-Intensive (WI) courses. Writing consultations can be either in-person or online, scheduled through WCOnline. For AY 2022-23, the Writing Center is located in Suite A600 of the under-construction Wallace Library (Building 5).
Tutoring Through Division of Diversity & Inclusion
Division of Diversity & Inclusion (DDI) Tutoring is a program that houses:
- Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) one-on-one tutoring
- Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) one-on-one tutoring
- Multicultural Center for Academic Success (MCAS) peer course consultant drop-in academic support
Student workers manage the space (Clark A - SAU 2520) and welcome students referred by peers, professors, advisors and other staff, and DDI programming. DDI Tutoring goes beyond providing academic strategies and content support. Through mentorship, student workers aid their peers by creating a sense of belonging and community, using affirming language, and sharing experiences of privilege and struggle.
