One-on-one Tutoring


What is one-on-one tutoring?

One-on-one tutoring is a weekly individual meeting between a tutor and tutee to address understanding of course content. This service is available only for those courses for which we offer group tutoring. The service is available during the Spring and Fall semesters to matriculated students after ADD/DROP period until three weeks prior to the last day of classes that semester.  

Who is eligible for one-on-one tutoring?

Matriculated students that are eligible for this service meet two or more of the following conditions:

  • They are repeating the course for which they are seeking one-on-one tutoring.
  • They have attended multiple group tutoring sessions through the RLC, but show little to no sign of progress in their course. We will ask that you show that you've attended group tutoring for at least 6 hours prior to your request.
  • A full-time Rutgers University faculty or staff member refers them for this service. 
  • They have some other special circumstance and believe one-on-one tutoring would greatly benefit them and have a strong case for this request.
