TRIO Tutoring: In-person and Online Tutoring

All our tutors will offer in-person tutoring in the TRIO Office (BE 1102-B1). In-person tutoring can be drop-ins but we highly recommend that you schedule an appointment beforehand to secure a tutoring appointment. There will be options to schedule the appointment to be in-person or online. As you're scheduling your appointment on Starfish, you get to choose the location (Zoom or in the TRIO office).
