No, all subject area tutoring is drop-in for our online tutoring center and our in-person tutoring centers.  All you need to do is have your ASU Sun Card and check in with a desk aide. Please note, you may be working in small groups with a tutor.

a) Students should keep in mind that tutors are also students, not experts, and may not have the answer to every question.

b) Students should come prepared with questions and specific concepts they would like to discuss.

c) Students should keep in mind that tutors are not permitted to help with graded assessments, quizzes, or exams unless otherwise stated by course's instructor via written communication to center supervisor. 

d) Tutors may review concepts and may work on practice problems similar to those commonly assigned as homework and on exams.

e) To the best of their ability, tutors may guide students towards a deeper understanding of concepts and will attempt to work towards helping the student build their skills in approaching the material. 

f) Students should keep in mind, tutoring is not a substitute for class attendance. 

g) All ASN staff and students should treat each other with respect, whether you’re online or
in-person, in order to maintain a safe environment that is conducive to learning for all parties.

Bring your ASU Sun Card and other materials such as notes, textbooks, calculators, paper, and pencils.

After you check in with a desk aide, you can submit your name to our Queueing system. A tutor will be with you as soon as possible.

How to raise your hand in the queue.

  • Support your learning by reviewing key concepts from courses and asking questions
  • Connect with other ASU students who have taken your courses and build an academic network
  • Formulate questions to take back to professors about course material

We can assist you with a variety of coursework. However, we cannot assist with take-home tests, quizzes, assessments, or assignments that are in direct violation of course policies about receiving assistance. Exceptions may be granted if the center supervisor receives written permission from the course's instructor for a course-related exam (permission from a TA is not adequate) or from a faculty advisor or official departmental representative for a degree-related exam. The center supervisor must receive this written permission via email from the appropriate individual before the tutoring session takes place.
