SJSU Tutoring Services

If you are in the SAS program, you can get tutoring help in many introductory and intermediate level courses from SJSU student tutors.  You can come in for same-day appointments or sign up for a tutoring appointment up to 2 weeks in advance. There are three types of tutoring services available to Undergraduate students:  

Individual Tutoring: This type of help is for students who are underprepared or anxious about course materials, students with certain learning disabilities, or students who need special assistance.

Small Group Tutoring: This type of help is for groups of up to four students from the same course. The groups are formed as students register for their appointments.  

LARC Tutoring at SJSU Housing: This type of help is offered in the evening at the Living Learning Center (LLC) in Campus Village B.  LARC tutors can help you with lower division Math and Writing courses.
