About Individual Tutoring


In an effort to meet student demand, the Tutor Clearinghouse is delivering its academic support services in new ways, beginning summer 2020.

Individual Tutoring will be very limited and is intended for students who demonstrate a particular need for individual tutorial support. Request an Individual Tutor.

Requests for Individual Tutors may be submitted beginning Friday, April 16th. Individual Tutoring may begin as early as the following week.  Requests will be reviewed throughout the term.

Requesting Specific Tutors/Tutees

Specific Requests

The meetings between specific tutor/tutee and the Tutor Clearinghouse are limited (through the Individual Tutor granting process) and are being converted to an online format. Details to request a specific tutor are provided on the Individual Tutor Request form. Individuals wishing to work together must complete this process before the match is considered official and the Individual Tutor can be paid by the Tutor Clearinghouse.

Continuing Work A With Tutor/Tutee

Requesting to work with an Individual Tutor involves a review process each term.  Any students who have been matched in a prior term that wish to continue working together in an immediately-following term must still submit an Individual Tutor request form.

Looking for Support in an ENGL, CRWT, COLT, or WRIT course?

The Tutor Clearinghouse does not provide tutors for English & Creative Writing, Comparative Literature, or Writing courses. However, there are many other resources on campus to support you. See our Campus Resources page here.

Specifically, the Student Center for Research, Writing, and Information Technology (RWIT) is a good service to consider. RWIT is a free service dedicated to helping members of the Dartmouth community develop more effective strategies for generating and organizing their ideas, finding and evaluating research sources, and presenting and revising compositions in a variety of media. At RWIT, you can meet one-on-one with an undergraduate or graduate tutor to discuss a paper, research project, or multimedia assignment. Tutors use a facilitative, rather than directive, approach in engaging writers in an active dialogue about their work. Whether you are brainstorming, drafting, or polishing, RWIT tutors can provide feedback that will help you create final products of which you can be proud.
