Our recommendation is always that you first speak to the professor teaching the course before deciding to use a tutor. The professor may be able to offer suggestions on how to best approach the material, and are often available for extra help during their office hours.
For Successful Tutoring:
Know what you want to work on. Do your assignments.
GO TO CLASS
Tutoring cannot make up for missed lectures>
Tutoring is not a lecture. It is an active way to process information in which you and your tutor participate one on one.
You MUST SIGN IN to the McGill Web System (yellow Login box) to access the online tutor request form..
***Varsity athletes must contact the Intercollegiate Office in the Dept. of Athletics to request a tutor to receive subsidized tutoring.
***Clients of the Office for Students with Disabilities requiring a tutor must contact an Access Services Advisor to determine their eligibility for partially subsidized tutoring.
PLEASE NOTE: You will receive a reply within 48 hours of submitting your request, with the exception of weekends, holidays, and peak periods.
Tutors are also available to the general public. Non-McGill students must email the tutoring [dot] service [at] mcgill [dot] ca (Administrative Coordinator) for instructions on how to proceed to request a tutor.
Do you consider yourself a people person?
