How Can We Help You? 

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. All our tutors' face to face hours are also available for online tutoring, so don’t be surprised to see your tutor working with a student online, or to see your student working with a student in person during your online appointment. 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 appointment.  

For appointments: Please go to your canvas course or email the tutoring center with the course name and number you wish to be tutored in, as well as your preferred appointment time. Please note: your preferred time must be within the time frame of our operating hours. Once you submit your request, you will be contacted within 24-48 hours. When visiting the center, make sure to bring your textbook, notes, and student ID so the tutors may best serve you.
