DISCLAIMER: The tutors listed here are responsible for listing their areas of expertise, as well as for setting their own financial and scheduling details. The department does not verify the qualifications listed here by individual tutors. You should email one of these tutors directly if you have any further questions about the type of help you are seeking, the times and places a tutor is available, or what that tutor charges for his or her services.

RESTRICTIONS: A graduate student is not allowed to tutor students in courses being taught by that graduate student OR in courses being taken by that graduate student (i.e., if an undergraduate and graduate student are both taking a split-level course together, then the undergraduate must turn to a different tutor for help). This restriction is in place to avoid conflict of interest issues and to protect both the tutor and the tutoree. Failure to comply with this restriction will result in penalties for the graduate student tutor, including removal from this private tutor list and possible loss of AIship.
