What if I don’t see the subject or course I’m looking for?If you don’t see your course or computer application, please complete a tutor request form. This form will alert us that there is a need for your course and allow us to seek out a tutor as soon as possible.
Once you’ve successfully made an appointment, you’ll receive a confirmation in your UB email. The email will also give you options to modify or cancel the appointment should you need to.
Unless the tutor emails you otherwise, you’ll meet your tutor in the Tutoring Lounge on the 2nd floor of RLB Library. Also on that floor are the Writing Center, BL217, and Math Support Center, BL201.
