Walk-in Schedule Changes-Academic Development - Carnegie Mellon University

What is Peer Tutoring?

Peer tutoring is a program designed to assist students with their coursework and it is available in two formats: Walk-in Tutoring and weekly Standing Tutoring Appointments.
Many courses have multiple support services. View a list of the types of academic support we offer for your course.

Standing Tutoring Appointments

Standing Tutoring Appointments may be available for courses not supported by Walk-in Tutoring, EXCEL Groups or Supplemental Instruction (SI). If you need help in a course not supported by these other services, you can request a standing tutoring appointment. Standing appointments are an on-going weekly commitment. Students meet with tutors once a week for one hour at a set time. If you cannot make this weekly commitment, then a standing tutoring appointment is not for you.
Read our Attendance Policy to find out how standing appointments work. Then come in to the Academic Development office in Cyert Hall, Suite B5 to fill out a Tutoring Request Form. We'll do our best to find you a tutor as quickly as possible.

Please note that standing tutoring appointments may involve small group tutoring — individual tutoring appointments are not guaranteed.

Walk-in Tutoring

Walk-in tutoring is geared primarily towards large introductory courses and offered Sunday through Thursday evenings at select residence halls and other locations on campus during the fall and spring semesters. It is also offered on Monday and Wednesday afternoons in Cyert Hall room B6-A. View the full schedule for courses and nights offered.
