Scheduling a Session

  1. Go to
  2. Log in using your SJSU email address and the password you created for this account.
  3. Select your preferred schedule (In-Person Tutoring or Online Tutoring) from the drop-down menu.
  4. Choose a date and time for your appointment from the openings available. Open appointment slots are white. Red slots are already reserved by other students; navy blue slots indicate that the tutor does not work during that time. Gray slots are days and times that have already passed.
  5. Click once on the open appointment slot that you wish to reserve.
  6. When the new reservation window pops up, fill out all the information required (marked with a red asterisk). If you miss a section, the system will not accept your reservation. You will have to go back and type in everything again, so be sure that you fill out every required field.
  7. When you've completed the reservation form, click the create appointment button to complete the reservation process. Your reservation will now appear on the schedule. Your appointment slot shows as gold/yellow. You will receive confirmation and reminder messages that will be sent to your SJSU email address.
