Fee Based Tutoring

To assist students in obtaining tutoring in a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate courses, we are partnering with Tutor Matching Services (TMS), a private company that works with universities including Purdue, Clemson, and NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering.

Tutoring will occur in several locations on campus, including Bird Library. Scheduling will occur online through the Syracuse page of the Tutor Matching Service website. The page is now up and running, and tutors are entering their schedules.

CRLA certified tutors, tutors trained by CLASS, and tutors who demonstrate qualifications based on SU coursework will have their credentials listed on the Tutor Matching Service website. Tutors for this program work as independent contractors for TMS. Tutors set their own rates and are paid by TMS.

We anticipate that tutor availability will increase gradually over the first few weeks of the semester.

Students seeking tutoring should sign up using the Syracuse page of the Tutor Matching Service website. If tutoring is not available for a course you’re interested in or you have other questions about tutoring, email so TMS can assist you.

Some schools and colleges and University offices cover some tutoring costs for students. Please contact one of these offices or your home school/college advising office to inquire about this possibility. Participating schools, colleges and offices include: the Office of Disability Services; the Slutzker Center for International Services; Student Support Services (SSS); the Higher Education Opportunity Programs (HEOP and UC HEOP); the Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP); the School of Education; the College of Engineering and Computer Science; The David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics; the School of Information Studies; the Martin J. Whitman School of Management; and the College of Visual and Performing Arts.

The TMS online platform for scheduling tutoring meets Syracuse University accessibility standards.
