Exploratory Studies Tutoring

This fall the University Tutorial Center (UTC) will provide free academic assistance to NC State students enrolled for credit in many high demand gateway courses.  The following assistance will be available:

  • New!  Evening drop-in tutoring for CH 101 and pre-calculus and calculus math courses
  • Supplemental Instruction (SI) for Chemistry 101, 201, 221 and PY 211
  • Writing and Speaking services for both undergraduate and graduate students for assistance at any stage of the writing process
  • two different tutoring by appointment programs* for most 100- and 200- level math, chemistry, and physics courses  (only option that requires new users to complete a one-time 30 minute orientation)

Further information about all of these programs can be found at http://tutorial.dasa.ncsu.edu.    We also have a “Find Help by Couse” link on this site that directs students to many other resources on campus, as well.

*Important information for the tutoring by appointment programs: 

Attending an orientation is the first step in the tutoring by appointment application process for students who have not attended one in a previous semester.  Students who are new to the UTC and interested in applying for a tutor by appointment should visit  https://tutorial.dasa.ncsu.edu/tutoring/fallspring-tutoring/ to view our orientation schedule.  Students do not need to pre-register for an orientation, although it is essential that they arrive on time to the large group meeting.  Students who arrive after the session has begun will be asked to attend a different session.  Orientation opportunities will begin on Monday, August 22nd.

Students who have completed an orientation in a previous semester and want a tutor by appointment should submit an application online beginning Monday, August 22nd.
