Peer Tutoring Service Hours
Peer Tutoring is currently closed for Fall Semester. Peer Tutoring will resume on Tuesday, January 19th, 2021. You can start booking appointments on January 4th, 2021.
Online Appointments Only - your appointment confirmation email will contain a link to the WebEx virtual waiting room. Once checked in, you will be connected with your Peer Tutor.
The Learning Commons offers free tutoring for UC students. Please note, all Peer Tutoring appointments are currently available online only. Sessions are one-on-one with a subject-specific tutor to answer your questions. Our dedicated tutors participate in ongoing training to equip them with strategies to support extended classroom learning. Students may register using the button above.
The Learning Commons offers tutoring in more than 300 undergraduate courses including subjects such as math, science, languages, business, and writing. If you notice your desired course is not offered, please let us know. It is possible you may not see your course listed because it is fully booked at the time of your search. In this case, we recommend you search early in the morning a week ahead of when you want the appointment to be. At this time, we do not support courses above the 4000-level.
How does scheduling work?
Students may schedule appointments for one or two hours. Appointments can only be made up to 7 days in advance, and no less than 24 hours in advance.
All cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance through your online account or by calling the Learning Commons at (513) 556-3244.
Cancellations less than 24 hours notice will result in a No Show occurrence.

What to know before your Peer Tutoring appointment
Homework Help Notice
Peer Tutoring focuses on creating independent learners and making sure you understand the concepts necessary for you to complete your work and excel in a course.
Remember – your homework is a way to prepare for your exams. By helping you to understand the concepts in your course, your Peer Tutor is preparing you to complete your homework on your own. And if you’re able to complete your homework independently, then you’ll know that you’ll be prepared for your exam! If at any point you find yourself struggling with your homework and the concepts, be sure to visit us again.
It is important to know that Peer Tutoring does not provide homework help, but you can bring in assignments that are already graded to review the problems you missed.
What to Bring
Please bring your materials (textbook, notes, etc.) with you to your appointment. It is recommended that you take screenshots of any questions/diagrams from your textbook or class notes that you do not understand and save these as PDFs or JPEGs to upload into the session.
Technology for Online Appointments
Prior to your appointment you should have Chrome or Firefox downloaded or make sure these browsers are updated. Please also make sure your audio equipment (microphone/speakers/headset) is functioning. If applicable, please also set up your web camera.
