Tutoring & Study Help

Student Academic Support Services regularly employs peer tutors to help USF students in specific courses. An effort is made to offer tutoring in general education courses in which students historically face challenges.  If help is needed in subjects for which it is not offered in SASS, students should check SmarThinking (scroll down for info) or check within the department through which the course is offered to see if supplemental tutoring is available.

(The current semester tutoring schedule is also posted outside the SASS office, PJPII Room 210. Hours subject to change.)
