UT Dallas strongly supports student-to-student teaching and learning initiatives within The Student Success Center.
The UT Dallas Student Success Center offers FREE peer tutoring to currently enrolled UT Dallas students. Tutoring assistance is offered for many of the historically challenging subjects at UT Dallas, including Biochemistry, Biology, Organic Chemistry, General Chemistry, Neuroscience, and Mechanical Engineering.
Tutoring sessions are designed to meet students' individual questions and needs but the tutors do not provide direct answers for homework/exams. The Peer Tutors are undergraduate students who have excelled in the course in which they tutor and have been trained to facilitate discussions on course content, as well as study habits.
Tutoring sessions are held in McDermott Library (MC) 1.310. General and Organic Chemistry tutoring is available by drop-in and appointments. Come visit us in our new open chemistry tutoring lab! All other subjects are appointment-only. Please book an appointment in SSC onDemand!
Please see the schedule below for the times of the tutoring sessions.
