Individual Tutoring

At Vanderbilt Tutoring Services, you have the opportunity to meet individually with a talented staff of tutors who will help you enhance your academic performance through the power of collaborative learning.

All currently enrolled Vanderbilt students can sign up for 50-minute appointments with us. Our tutoring staff is qualified to tutor many introductory and intermediate level courses in the following subjects: Biological Sciences, Chemistry (General & Organic), Economics, Mathematics, and Physics. Services are free of charge.

To get started, simply look for the "Schedule an Appointment" link at the top of the right sidebar.

A Little More about Our Services

Individual Tutoring is available on a first-come basis to support students enrolled in a variety of classes offered by the following departments: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Economics, Mathematics, and Physics.

Our tutors are undergraduates or graduate students who, having achieved a certain level of academic success themselves, are dedicated to helping their fellow students strive for the same. All individual tutoring takes place on an appointment basis at 1801 Edgehill Avenue, Suite 112 (The Collaborative Learning Suite). 

Students are allowed one session per day and up to three sessions per week. Please plan ahead--we see surges in requests for our limited number of (busy) tutors as test times approach.

What Tutoring Does Not Provide

Tutoring Services does not provide general academic counseling, specialized tutoring for students with learning disabilities, specialized tutoring for ESL students, psychotherapy services, testing for learning disabilities, proofreading or copy-editing services, academic advising, or career counseling. Visit our Other Resources pages to learn more about additional support opportunities at Vanderbilt.

Important Scheduling Policies

  1. You may schedule, modify, or cancel your appointments at any time by logging into our online scheduling platform (the "Schedule an Appointment" link at the top of the right sidebar).
  2. When you must cancel an appointment, please do so at least 8 hours in advance so another student may make use of that time.
  3. Three "no-show" appointments will result in your ability to schedule additional appointments being revoked.

The Waitlist Feature

Don't see an appointment when you need it? Check out our Waitlist feature!  To join the waitlist, just click on the clock icon next to the day you need an appointment and sign up. You'll be notified if a cancellation matches your specified parameters. (You must then still log in and reserve the appointment yourself on a first-come basis.)
