Our Peer Tutors
CAS tutors are students who have performed well in their programs and particularly well in the classes they tutor. All tutors are trained to help students improve their academic skills while also making strides with their specific course.
1. Once you schedule an appointment, you will receive an e-mail to confirm the date and time of your appointment. The e-mail also confirms the name of the tutor, whom you will meet at the Center for Academic Success.
2. You may LOG IN at any time. From there, you can view your upcoming appointments by clicking on "View/Cancel an Upcoming Appointment." You may also use this button to cancel appointments up to 24 hours in advance. If you need to cancel an appointment with less than 24 hours notice, please try to contact your tutor directly and call 215 762-8121.

How do I schedule an appointment?
Scheduling a tutoring appointment
What times are tutoring services available?
Tutors set their schedules in advance, and their hours may change from week to week. Availability of tutoring varies depending on how many tutors tutor the specific course. If you don't see any times that work for you, please contact the tutor coordinator with your availability and the class for which you're seeking tutoring. We will work to try to find a tutor who is available when you are free.
What if I don't see the course for which I want tutoring?
If you don't see the course for which you want tutoring, that may mean we don't have a tutor for that course or it may mean we do have tutors, but the tutors have not scheduled their availability. Either way, please contact the tutor coordinator. When you do, please include your name, email, program and the course for which you want tutoring, including the course number.
What do tutors do?
Tutors primarily help students understand course material. You can review lectures and other material to increase your understanding. The tutor can quiz you to help you prepare for an upcoming exam. The tutor can also recommend ways to study and test-taking tips.
How long are the appointments?
You can select the amount of time that you want to meet with the tutor. It can range from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
What should I bring to my appointment?
You should bring notes from class, worksheets, textbooks, and/or review books. You should generally bring anything you want to go over with the tutor. There may be some textbooks available in the CAS, but your notes are very helpful in letting the tutor know exactly what the professor has gone over and the material the he or she emphasized.
Where do I meet my tutor?
You can meet your tutor in the CAS. If your appointment is scheduled for a time the office is closed, you can arrange beforehand to meet with your tutor at another location like the library or you can leave a note for the tutor on the door to the CAS to explain where you will meet him/her.
What if I need to cancel an appointment or I'm running late?
If you need to cancel an appointment more than 24 hours in advance, you can go online to the same place that you scheduled the appointment and cancel the appointment. If it is less than 24 hours before the appointment, please call the CAS at 215-762-8121 to let them know that you cannot make it and they will inform the tutor. If you have your tutor's contact information, please also try to contact her/him.
If you are running late, please call the office at 215-762-8121 to let your tutor know. If you are more than 15 minutes late and have not notified the office, we may assume you are not coming and the tutor has the right to leave.
