How to Request a Tutor

All tutor requests must go through the CAP office. Our tutors are UNTHSC students, your peers. They are trained to share strategies and tools that will allow you to process information more effectively. Our office offers Individual, Small Group, Drop In, and Large Group Tutorials.

Drop-In and Large Group Tutorials (LGTs) are open to everyone in the course. The tutoring coordinator will send out announcements about these opportunities.

For small group and individual tutoring:

  • All students requesting a tutor must make an appointment with a CAP Learning Specialist.
  • The CAP learning specialists will discuss learning strategies and an individualized approach for you.
  • If you are approved for tutoring, you will be notified as soon as possible (typically within 48 hours) with your tutor assignment.
