Tutoring Center

Tutoring is free to all enrolled Stanislaus State students

Our peer tutors help students by answering questions, reviewing materials, explaining concepts, repeating ideas, and modeling good study habits.

All of our peer tutors are hired for their knowledge of specific topics and abilities to effectively communicate. Throughout the semester the peer tutors are required to attend training sessions. Peer tutors must have received either an "A" or a "B" in order to tutor courses that they have taken or obtain a written referral from their professor.

Can't Find a Tutor?

We may not have tutors already hired for all of your classes. If you run a search and find none available, please submit a tutor request in this forum and we will work to find one.  Please keep in mind that the Tutoring Center does not offer graduate-level and very limited upper-division tutoring. After submitting the request, we will contact you via email if we are able to find and hire a tutor for the course you requested.
