Is there a fee for tutoring services?
Tutoring services are free. This is a benefit of being a student at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.
How do I sign up for tutoring?
Call 262-595-2044 or stop by the Center’s front desk.
Can I get tutoring in any subject?
Walk-in math tutoring is available whenever the Center is open. Appointments for writing assistance must be scheduled, though students are permitted one unscheduled drop-in visit per semester. We cannot promise to offer tutoring in all subjects, but we will do our best to find a tutor to help you. Appointment tutoring should be requested by speaking with the front-desk staff in the Tutoring Center.
How do I request a tutor for a subject where tutoring isn’t currently offered?
Make a request for a specific subject tutor by calling 595-2044 or by stopping by the Center's front desk.
How many hours of tutoring can I get?
Tutoring is limited to two sessions per week per subject. Writing appointments are 30 minutes long, and other subject appointments are 1 hour long. Though math tutoring is walk-in, sessions should still be limited to twice weekly.
Do I need to be a current student at Parkside to use tutoring services?
Yes, our services are only offered for UW-Parkside students who are currently enrolled in coursework.
How do you schedule my tutoring?
We arrange an appointment time convenient to you and your tutor using our online system. Both you and your tutor receive automated emails confirming the appointment. As previously stated, math tutoring is unscheduled.
Do I need to bring anything with me for tutoring?
Yes. You should be prepared for tutoring by bringing your textbook, your notes, your syllabus, and your assignment sheet. Copies of exams are helpful if these are available to you. Tutoring is most effective if you have already attempted your homework/assignment and have specific questions for the tutors.
What do you mean by “math help is done on a walk-in basis”?
This simply means you may come in "unscheduled" during our hours of operation. We have a staff of math tutors waiting to help you with your on-the-spot questions.
Do you do private tutoring?
No, we are not funded to provide private tutoring.
Are your tutors paid?
Yes, our tutors are paid. They are university employees when they are tutoring.
How can I become a tutor?
