Tutoring & Online Tools
The University of Michigan-Dearborn is committed to providing support to all students. One of the ways we are able to help students succeed is by providing access to academic resources and services. Below are just some of the resources available to you on campus or online. It is important for you to take charge of your education and seek out help if you are struggling!
Explore the tools and resources below, or schedule a tutoring consultation! We are here to help you succeed!
Tutoring services are available for all currently enrolled students, regardless of class standing. You will meet with the tutoring coordinator first to discuss your needs and then you will either be matched with a tutor (if available), referred to the appropriate resources on campus, or the tutoring coordinator will work with a faculty member to identify possible additional support.
- Tutors are available for the many basic courses, such as Chem 134 and Biol 130. If you need a tutor, reach out to the Tutoring Coordinator so that they can meet with you and get you the help you need. Not all classes have tutors, but there are other resources available to assist you! There are also other resources that you can utilize to develop your academic skills.
For COB courses, please see this site for availability and scheduling.
For additional support in CECS courses, please see the Engineering Learning Center.
