Tutoring

The Department of Computer Science offers FREE in-person  tutoring for students enrolled in CSC courses during the fall and spring semesters. If you need extra support on assignments, want to check your understanding of CS concepts, or just want that little bit of help, stop by our Tutor Center for help. Our undergraduate tutors have successfully completed CS courses and can help guide you to success.

*The Tutor Center is closed on university holidays, spring break, winter closure, and summer. The Tutor Center may offer limited tutoring during final exam week, but depends on staffing.

Freya joined the Tutor Center in spring 2022. Freya joined the Tutor Center because she wanted to help others and use the opportunity to practice her programming skills. Freya enjoys tutoring because "I love watching students gain that sudden moment of relief when they suddenly understand something they have been struggling with". 

An interesting tidbit - Freya participates in the St Patrick's Day parade as a member of the Desert Irish Wolfhound Association.

If you have any questions/concerns/comments about tutoring in the Department of Computer Science, contact tutorcoords@cs.arizona.edu and Martin Marquez (martinmarquez@cs.arizona.edu).

The Department of Computer Science does not offer private tutoring. We are happy to help connect you with a member of our current tutor team. You can email tutorcoords@cs.arizona.edu and Martin Marquez (martinmarquez@cs.arizona.edu) if you'd like assistance in finding a private student tutor. Our team will reach out to our current tutors to see if any are interested in serving as private tutor. Please note, however, that the Department of Computer Science is not responsible for private tutor arrangements - it is an arrangement between two private entities : requestor and the tutor. 

The Tutor Center hires undergraduate students each semester. Announcements about hiring for the Tutor Center are sent via email to CS student listservs and through targeted direct emails. The hiring committee invites you to apply if you:

  • are an undergraduate student that has completed (or are about to complete) all CS pre-major coursework (110, 120, 210, 144, 244 [or 245]) 
  • are able to tutor for multiple classes (tutors are only able to tutor for courses in which they received a grade of B or higher)
  • want to help others 

The CS Tutor Center is always looking to recognize our tutors and find ways to improve our services. We invite any student that has used the Tutor Center to share their experience with us via the Tutor Center Survey.
