Frequently Asked Questions
When you sign in, it allows us to see when students use the SSC and for which subjects tutors most frequently are needed.
We can offer help in chemistry, biology, psychology, anthropology and many more subjects--not just math and English. Just ask a staff member to direct you to the tutor that can help you with your subject.
Due to the high demand of tutoring needed in math and science courses, we cannot accommodate personal and individual tutoring for every student that requests it. Although personal appointments are not available, walk-in tutoring allows our tutors to work with you in small, collaborative group or with specific questions.
Scheduled appointments are important so that writing tutors can effectively review your paper and offer feedback; however, walk-in tutoring is available when there are no previous appointments.
We can help you schedule an appointment at our front desk, or you can give us a call at (928) 317-6029. You can also request an appointment on our Tutoring page. If you need to cancel your appointment, please give us a call so that we can make our tutors available to other students.
You can schedule one 45-minute tutoring session per day.
Our math tutors constantly circulate the center to help reach as many students as possible. They may work with you for 5 minutes, 25 minutes, or even longer depending on your questions and the needs of other students. To maximize your time with our tutors we recommend you attempt your assignments before asking a tutor for help.
Bring any and all materials relevant to the assignment you are working on--books, notes, handouts, etc., and have any questions about the assignment ready for your tutor.
