Our Tutors:

Our student tutors have met departmental qualifications and earned a high recommendation from their college instructor(s), are enrolled at Texas State as a full time student and maintain high grades in their own classes. Some tutors are qualified to tutor additional science and engineering courses. Refer to the Tutor Schedule posted above the sign-in sheet as well as their tutoring profiles on the bulletin board in Derrick 238.
Tutors will assist you in your homework and understanding of the material but will not do your homework for you. You are responsible for being proactive in your learning.
