tips2. Calendar Scheduling

Pick a time that works with your schedule.

Once you've searched for a tutor or class, enable the calendar to pick a time that works best for you.

mitch3. Immediate Sessions

Get tutored now.

Look for tutors with the "Available Now!" banner. Look for these coaches for immediate sessions or if you want to schedule within two hours.

4. Schedule in Advance

Give tutors time to respond.

Make sure to schedule sessions at least five hours ahead of time.

5. Search for Your Class

Be specific.

Ex: "MATH1323: College Algebra" or "ENGL1403: American Literature," not "Writing" or "Physics."

6. Message a Tutor

Ensure the tutor received your request.

If a tutor doesn't approve your session in 24 hours, message them to see if they are available. If not, you can cancel this session and look for another tutor.

7. Let Us Know!

Tell us about your experience.

If you schedule a session that the tutor never answers, let us know! E-mail us at Then schedule a new session with a different tutor or try an immediate session with an "Available Now" tutor!
