Tutoring Services for Students

It is not uncommon to need additional academic support in order to be successful in your classes.

REMEMBER: If you are struggling in any of your classes be sure to speak to your faculty member and teaching assistant immediately – do not wait until the second midterm to ask for help! Office hours are a form of individualized tutoring, so be sure to attend office hours on a regular (weekly) basis. If you are uncomfortable going to office hours alone, ask a fellow classmate to accompany you.

If you find that you still need additional assistance, please consider using some or all of the following resources available for UC Davis students.
