Tutoring in the Academic Resource Center
Tyler’s Academic Resource Center (ARC) provides tutoring support for students in a wide variety of subjects, including writing, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), business, and study skills/tech help. Tutoring is free for all Tyler students and there is no limit to the number of tutoring sessions each semester.
Using the ARC Online
Online Tutoring on Zoom
Drop-In Tutoring is available in the Virtual ARC via Zoom Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Tutoring is offered on a wide variety of subjects, including Writing, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), Business, study skills & planning, and more!
Use Drop-In Tutoring to have a focused session with a tutor, or keep it pulled up in the background while you study and ask questions when you get stuck.
Make sure you are logged into your myTyler before clicking into the Zoom session.
If you are looking for tutoring in a specific course, please take a look at our Course Proficiencies Schedule to see when we have tutors available for your specific class. If you need help with something you don't see on the list, feel free to email us.
Not able to come in during our Drop-In Tutoring hours? Submit a request for an After-Hours Appointment, and we'll do our best to accommodate times that work with your schedule. Appointments are subject to tutor availability and will be held via Zoom; please give us two business days to schedule your appointment. You must be logged into your myTyler account to access the request form. Requests made after 12 p.m. on Friday will not be scheduled until the following week.
