Drop-In tutoring targets our highest demand courses through regularly scheduled open tutoring sessions during the fall and spring semesters. You are not required to commit to regular attendance and you can come as needed throughout the semester. You can utilize Drop-In Tutoring to discuss course related content, clarify and ask questions, work through practice problems, and stay and do work.
The peer learning support staff consists of tutors, academic coaches, and supplemental instruction leaders who are both undergraduate as well as graduate students. We are all concerned about our health as a community of learners, and therefore, during the coaching, tutoring, and SI sessions, we request that any student with fever, cough, or any respiratory symptoms stay at home. Please do not attend the session and place others in jeopardy. Instead, call UHS at 412 268- 2157 for consultations, and return to any of these sessions when you are feeling better and your health has improved.

Tutoring consists of ongoing individualized and small group sessions for students seeking support related to their coursework. You can utilize tutoring to discuss course related content, clarify and ask questions, work through practice problems, etc.
- Once your request is received, you and your tutor work directly together to schedule your sessions.
- Our goal is to support all students, however, please note that not every request can be accommodated as we only make matches when a qualified tutor can be identified.
- If tutoring is not available for your requested course, we will work in partnership with other learning support programs to best support you.
- Our services are not a replacement for attending class, recitations and/or office hours. Our role is to support your efforts alongside your class. As resources are limited, we strongly encourage you to attend office hours for your professor or TA where applicable.
- Request a tutoring appointment
- See the list of courses we are currently able to support with tutoring appointments.
Following is a list of courses we are currently able to support with tutoring appointments. Our goal is to provide you with the support and resources you need to be a successful independent learner in your course. As such, you may still submit a request for tutoring in a course that is not on this list and we will do our best to connect you with other sources of course support including Study Partners, Academic Coaching, and department resources. We are available to meet with you to answer any questions you have and invite you to speak with a Student Academic Success Team member via Zoom during our business hours or you can schedule a 30-minute individual consultation.
Each column in the table shows the type of support available for the listed courses.
Please note: Drop-In Tutoring is only available during the Fall and Spring semesters.
*Availability of tutors for 1-on-1 or small groups may change as the semester progresses.
