Tutoring & Academic Resources

SEAS provides free peer tutoring to all undergraduate SEAS students in a range of introductory and engineering-specific courses. Our tutors are top-notch current SEAS undergraduate students who excelled in the courses they now tutor.

There are three types of SEAS tutoring: Express Tutoring, Review Sessions and Computer Science Study Halls. Each method provides a different atmosphere and type of resource.  Read more about each type below.

Spring 2018 tutoring starts on Sunday, January 28th.
