One-on-one and small group tutoring is available Monday—Thursday on the 3rd floor of Coughlin Hall during the fall and spring semesters. Tutors are available for all pre-college courses and most Marquette
freshman and sophomore level courses. Sessions are scheduled to meet twice per week for one hour per tutorial.
College students should come to the Tutorial Office in Coughlin Hall Room 311 and complete the Tutor Request process. Pre-college students can make the request through their Upward Bound advisor.
While we make an effort to find a tutor to match each student’s particular need, because we depend on peer individual tutors, it is not always possible to find a qualified tutor to provide assistance in all subjects; however, we make every effort to accommodate studentneeds.
Although students can request a tutor at any time in the semester,
tutoring is most effective if you begin early. Don’t wait until you develop significant problems.
How can you get the most out of tutoring?

To be considered for a paid tutoring position you must:
Have at least 2 hours of availability per week
We hire most of our tutors for the year during the fall semester. Students interested in becoming tutors should come to Coughlin Hall Room 311, either Monday or Tuesday during the first week of fall classes. Applicants will need to complete an application form and attend an information session.
We select tutors based on their outstanding academic records, their references, performance in their subject area, communication skills, and their ability to relate to our student population. The goal of the tutor is to instill confidence in their students so they can begin to work independently.
