ClockWork information sessions for students

Student Accessibility and Achievement will hold two virtual training sessions for registered students to learn more about ClockWork, our new online platform.

These one (1) hour trainings will be held on ZOOM and are intended for students who are registered with SAA. We will go over the basics of how to use Clockwork, including: how to review and confirm academic accommodations, booking appointments, signing up for exam accommodations and more!

Sign up for one of the trainings using the links below:

Find a Tutor

Before deciding to use a tutor, we always recommend that you first speak to the instructor of the course. The instructor may be able to offer suggestions on how to best approach the material, and is often available for extra help during their office hours.

We would like to encourage our students to continue to meet virtually. However, should you choose to meet physically on campus, please be sure to follow health guidelines, including maintaining physical distancing, wearing masks and handwashing.

Request a Tutor

Students who are registered with Student Accessibility and Achievement, and qualify for subsidized tutoring as part of their accommodation plan:


How do I request a tutor?

To request a tutor, complete the Tutor Request Form. You will receive a reply within 2-3 business days of submitting your request, with the exception of weekends, holidays, and peak periods.

Note: The form is restricted to the members of McGill University. To access the form, sign in using your McGill e-mail and password

Students who qualify for subsidized tutoring as a part of their academic accommodation plan with Student Accessibility and Achievement can request a tutor using the Forms module on Clockwork

What happens after I request a tutor?

  1. You will be provided with the available tutors for the course you requested through your McGill email.

What are my responsibilities as a tutee?

  1. Always treat the tutor with respect.
  2. Be on time for tutoring sessions.
  3. Cancel your session at least 24 hours in advance, if you are unable to attend. Students failing to do so will be responsible to pay for the first hour of the scheduled session.
  4. Stay on top of class work (e.g.: attend classes, listen to online lectures, read notes, etc.).
  5. Prepare for the session with questions to ask the tutor by completing as much work as possible beforehand (example: read the textbook, attempt homework problems, etc.).
  6. Remit payment directly to the tutor after every session.
    • Non-subsidized students must pay the tutor directly after every session.
    • Subsidized students must sign the timesheet by hand after each session to confirm the hours tutored.
