Need tutoring? We're here to help you!

The ASC houses campus-wide tutoring to serve all UNLV undergraduate students.

The ASC offers campus-wide tutoring for all UNLV undergraduate students at no additional charge. The ASC Tutoring Program has two labs on campus: The General Subjects (LLB) Tutoring Lab and the Engineering Tutoring Lab (TBE A309). Please note the in-person and virtual tutoring opportunities listed below.

We are excited to announce the UNLV COM Lab is a new cooperative project created by experienced faculty from the Department of Communication Studies and the Academic Success Center. For more information, visit the COM Lab Page

Non-Traditional Subjects

ASC Tutoring offers the Partners in Progression program to UNLV students. This is our initiative to connect undergraduate students requesting non-traditional course subjects (e.g. COM 101, PHIL 102, PSY 101, etc.) with current tutors in the lab. Students needing assistance in a subject not currently listed on our website are encouraged to contact the tutoring labs to see if a current tutor may be able to assist.

Quizzes and Exams

ASC tutoring can assist students with formative assessments only within the learning process. But, to uphold the academic honesty code of conduct, students are strictly prohibited from receiving assistance for summative assessments such as quizzes and exams.

Our Philosophy

Become a Tutor

Interested in joining our team? We employ UNLV students who are passionate about student learning and desire to work in an environment that will help them develop knowledge in collaborative learning, public speaking and leadership skills. Tutors will work with students, fellow peer leaders, faculty and other ASC staff members over the semester. Eligible tutors must:

  • Have completed the prospective course(s) they wish to support in tutoring with a grade of "B" or better
  • Have received a faculty recommendation

All prospective tutors must complete and submit the online application form along with a faculty recommendation to the Academic Success Center (ASC) to be considered.

Learn More and Apply

Recruitment and hiring is based on need, and qualified applicants will be contacted directly to move forward in the recruitment process. Please note that there might be some tutor application/hiring delays at this time.

To Our Faculty and Campus Partners

The Tutoring Program’s mission to offer content-learning support to students enrolled in historically difficult courses would not be possible without the support of our UNLV Faculty and Campus Partners.

Each semester we review opportunities to expand ASC tutoring into subjects and locations to reach new UNLV students on campus. If you are a UNLV Faculty Member that would like to discuss an opportunity to partner with the ASC Tutoring Program, we encourage you to contact us at tutoring@unlv.edu.
