Academic Assistance: Tutoring Services
Tutoring services are free to Touro students, and appointments can be made at any Touro campus. Our statistics show that those who avail themselves of tutoring services are more likely to get higher grades, so why not take advantage of this free opportunity.
Receiving academic assistance through tutoring will not affect your financial aid, nor will it be entered in your academic record. It is at your discretion that you disclose you are receiving academic assistance to your professor.
Free individual- and small-group tutoring services are available at all sites of Touro College for students who need support in classroom instruction. These services can provide academic assistance in English, ESL, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Math, Calculus, Accounting, Computer Science, Psychology, Statistics, and other academic areas upon request.

What to expect
You may receive academic assistance for each course in which you are enrolled. Come to the tutoring session with any questions so that you can review concepts to help you complete assignments and prepare for exams. Our staff are faculty members, graduate students, and your peers - all of whom excel in their subject area. However, they cannot complete your homework assignments for you, or write your papers.
English/College Writing tutoring and learning associates can brainstorm with you to help you develop your topics and assignments for your APA or MLA papers. They can assist you in organizing your paper, point out errors that should be fixed, explain faulty grammar, and guide you on where you can improve your paper to achieve a better grade. Additionally, they can help ESL students. Online Tutoring and drop-in help is also available for writing assignments.
For each session you’ll need to sign in, recording the date, time in and out. Remember to bring your textbook, exams, and assignments to the learning session.
Notify the tutoring and learning associate if you cannot keep your appointment by contacting him or her or by calling the Resource Center coordinator at your site. Students who fail to give a 24-hour notice - in case they should miss an appointment - will be dropped from the tutoring and learning associate’s roster. If you are not satisfied with your tutoring and learning associate, request a change. Don't wait until the end of the semester.
