The LRC will be open for academic support services for the spring 2021 semester on February 8. All services will continue to be virtual.
Tutoring by Appointment provides students with course-specific academic support in a 1:1 or 2:1 setting. Each semester, we tutor over 100 of the most popular courses on campus. Tutoring by Appointment at the LRC is available virtually (via Zoom), with appointment times available throughout the week. Tutoring appointments can be scheduled up to 5 days in advance using the “Tutoring Appointments” link on the LRC (www.umass.edu/lrc) webpage or by speaking with an LRC team member via our Office Hours Zoom Room: https://umass-amherst.zoom.us/s/94650898475
Tutoring appointments are 50 minutes long and offer students an opportunity to engage in deep study with a tutor. Focusing on specific course content, tutoring by appointments supports students as they work through questions based on current content and formalize knowledge needed to fill learning gaps and misconceptions. To make the most of your time in a tutoring appointment, it’s important to bring your classes resources, have an idea (even a very general idea is helpful!) of where you want to get started, and be ready to engage with your tutor!
Because there are a limited number of tutoring appointments available each day, we ask that you cancel appointments you are unable to make at least two hours before the start of your session. You can cancel appointments through Navigate or by speaking with an LRC Team Member!
Drop-in Tutoring provides students with course-specific academic support in a 1:1 or small group setting. Drop-in Tutoring at the LRC is available virtually (via Zoom) by clicking on: https://umass-amherst.zoom.us/s/94650898475. Drop-in times are available throughout the week, but students should use the schedule at (Schedule) to determine when drop-in tutoring for their course is offered.
Drop-in tutoring sessions are 30 minutes long and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Drop-in tutoring is most effective when students have specific questions they want to address quickly with their tutor. Drop-in tutoring is meant to help get a student moving over a small comprehension hurdle or to move forward with a small learning goal. While many students come to drop-in tutoring because of questions about an assignment, tutors are encouraged to help students review concepts related to the assignment and will not complete assignments for the student.
You must make an appointment to meet with a 1-on-1 tutor at the LRC. You can use the NAVIGATE system to schedule an appointment up to 5 days in advance. You can make a tutoring appointment online up to 4 hours before the time you'd like to participate in a tutoring appointment. For last minute appointments, to be added to our day of waitlist, and other scheduling questions, please call us at 413-545-5334.
