UPSA offers free tutoring in several psychology courses. All tutors have a firm grasp on the course content (a minimum of an A is required to be eligible to tutor) and have received training.
Private tutoring runs one hour per week. Sessions are scheduled at the tutor and tutee's discretion.
We match our tutors and tutees based on availability and mutual course selections. Until all applications are received, we cannot be certain which courses will be available for tutorship. However, PSYC1010, PSYC2030, and PSYC 2020/2021/2022 are commonly offered.
Unfortunately, tutee and tutor applications are closed for the Fall semester. However, they will reopen once again during the Winter semester. The exact date is TBD, but keep an eye out for an announcement on our website or on our social media as the Winter semester approached!
