On-Campus Tutoring Services

Attending a rigorous and academically-challenging university can be difficult for many students. Because of these expectations inside and outside of the classroom, some may feel embarrassed about asking for extra help with their courses.  While attending office hours with professors are highly encouraged, sometimes this approach is not helpful for all students.  To obtain a more thorough grasp on class material, USC offers tutoring services on campus that are readily available and provide different types of assistance.  For a more personal approach, peer tutoring is available in the subjects of biology, chemistry, French, mathematics, music composition, physics, psychology and Spanish.  To contact a peer tutor, simply go online to the USC Undergraduate Education website and register an account with your USC email to request a tutor through the Tutor Request System.  For a more holistic approach to a subject, departmental tutoring services are also available on campus: Marshall Peer Tutoring ProgramSupplemental Instruction, The Writing Center, The Language Center, and Viterbi Academic Resource Center (VARC).  Each of these departmental programs has their own websites with further instructions on how to create an appointment.  If a subject is not listed above, students can also request additional tutoring by emailing tutoring@usc.edu. Don’t be afraid to ask for help!
