Need tutoring? We've got your back!

The ASC houses campus-wide tutoring to serve all UNLV undergraduate students. No appointments necessary.

Online Tutoring

For your convenience, the ASC is offering drop-in tutoring fully online (via Zoom) during the fall 2020 semester while the physical tutoring lab locations are closed until further notice.

Please note that the virtual locations will operate as extensions of the UNLV campus with the same rules and student code of conduct as our physical locations, and will maintain the same schedule of subject availability as posted at the beginning of the semester (see announcements).

How to Login

UNLV students can access the virtual tutoring location by visiting the Zoom website and entering the corresponding meeting ID number of the desired subject/location listed below. Provide the password "tutoring" before being admitted into the waiting room.

Students will be admitted into the virtual tutoring location by a Front Desk Leader who will prompt the student for their NSHE number and requested course before placing them in a Breakout Room. Similar to our physical drop- in tutoring locations, students will be placed in “breakout groups” based on their requested course, and can prompt available tutors with questions as needed. Students can leave the virtual tutoring location at their leisure once they have completed their tutoring session, and will not need to check-out.

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.

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. Volunteer opportunities are also available to qualified applicants who wish to be involved in tutoring with limited time availability.

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.
