Otherwise, please make an online tutoring appointment with either our UT Tyler student tutors or an Upswing tutor. To utilize live captions with Upswing, please follow these instructions

The PASS Tutoring Center is located in LIB 401 for face to face tutoring, and available through zoom for online tutoring. You do not need an appointment to see a tutor in person; however, you will need an appointment to work with a tutor online. For assistance scheduling an online appointment, please contact us at tutoring@uttyler.edu.

How Can We Help You? 

The PASS Tutoring Center has moved its UT Tyler student tutors to Zoom for online tutoring sessions. In order to make an online tutoring appointment with a UT Tyler student tutor, please visit Navigate. 

How to Make an Online Appointment with a UT Tyler Tutor via Navigate

We are still partnered with Upswing to offer free 24/7 online sessions with Upswing tutors, so feel free to continue this service whenever UTT tutors are unavailable. If you have any questions, please email us at tutoring@uttyler.edu.

The Patriot Academic Success Services (aka, PASS) Tutoring Center offers free, walk-in, face to face tutoring for our currently enrolled UT Tyler students. We also offer online tutoring through Zoom on an appointment basis. We offer tutoring on a variety of STEM, business, and nursing courses that many students take during their undergraduate career. Support for these courses are chosen based on historical institutional data, such as high failure rates, D grades, and withdrawal rates from these courses. 

All of our tutors are students as well. They have taken the course(s) they support, earned an A or B, and are faculty recommended. On top of these high qualifications, our tutors are rigorously trained throughout the semester to ensure that our students have the best experience while visiting the PASS Tutoring Center.  

What Can I Expect When I Visit the PASS Tutoring Center? 

We offer a challenge and support approach in the PASS Tutoring Center. Our tutors will challenge our students to think critically and learn independent learning skills in a collaborative learning environment.  

This means our tutors are not there to give you the answers or do your work for you. After all, our tutors cannot be in class with you when you take your exams. Instead, our tutors can guide you to find the answers on your own, share tips for studying and learning the content from their time taking the course, and help break down difficult content in a way that may be easier to understand.  

Our tutors often help students in a group setting, so they will float from student to student. They are sure to assist each student and answer their questions to the best of their abilities. You do not need to make an appointment to work with a tutor face to face; however, you will need to make an appointment to see a tutor online. In order to assist as many students as possible, we do not guarantee one on one time with our tutors even if you make an online appointment.
