Tutor Request

Our Peer Tutoring program provides quality, course-specific academic support to University of South Carolina undergraduate students at no cost. Tutoring sessions are tailored to meet the needs of each student and to foster independent learning.

Supported Courses

We offer peer tutoring for more than 80 USC courses. Before you request a tutor, make sure your course isn't already supported by tutoring or Supplemental Instruction.

Requesting a Tutor

Visit in Person
Check in at the SSC Front Desk. Let the staff member know you would like to request a tutor and you will be assisted. Be sure to bring the syllabus for the course for which you'd like to be tutored.

Requests should be made by mid-semester, before the last day to drop or withdraw from a course without a grade "WF" being recorded.

At Your Appointment

Expect your consultation appointment to last 30 to 60 minutes. You'll discuss your study strategies, class attendance and efforts to connect with your instructor.
