Tutoring Information

Tutoring is free of charge and is available for various lower-level and certain upper-division undergraduate courses.

Tutoring sessions are facilitated by a trained and experienced peer tutor. Sessions are scheduled at the mutual convenience of both the student(s) and the tutor.  

Clicking the link below will direct you to our Starfish student support system. Sign in with your Campus Computer Account information (same as you use for Outlook, BearPAWS,etc), then click the “Raise Hand” button.  Under the Type of Help Needed section, select “I Need a Tutor”.


Once your request is received, we will work to find you the most appropriate resources. Sometimes this means waiting for us to find a suitable tutor or for additional requests for tutoring in a particular course. In any case, we typically notify students within 3-5 days regarding the status of their request.

Student Expectations

Tutoring can be a great resource to help you succeed in your courses. In order for all students to get the most out of the experience, students are expected to:

  • Check your Potsdam email account often and respond to the tutor as soon as possible so you are aware of the date/time/location of each session. 
  • Attend sessions fully prepared and ready to participate. 
  • Please note that if you miss two tutoring sessions, without proper notification to the tutor through email,  you will no longer receive tutoring for the remainder of the semester.
  • If you need to cancel a session, you must notify the tutor, in an email, that you are unable to attend.
