Individual tutoring for the spring 2019 semester starts on Monday, February 11th. Beginning on Saturday, february 9th, students may make an individual appointment with a tutor by going to: fit.mywconline.com, choosing "Academic Skills Center" from the dropdown menu, and following the directions. Appointments during the spring semester must be made at least 48 hours in advance, and students may schedule 1 hour per week. Cancellations must be done at least 24 hours in advance by calling (212) 217- 4080 or sending an email to [email protected] If students do not cancel 24 hours in advance, it will be considered an absence, and each student is only allowed one absence per semester.
During the fall and spring semesters, students who are currently registered in credit-bearing or developmental courses at FIT may receive up to 15 hours of individual tutoring each semester. They may also attend walk-in tutoring sessions for certain subjects as often as they like. In order to receive tutoring for a particular class, students must be currently taking that class and may schedule an appointment for up to two weeks in a row at one time.
Online Tutoring Sessions
If you would like to work with a tutor online, you must chose a tutor who has the words, "Face-to-Face or Online", under their name in the scheduling program. If it does not say this under the tutors name, then that tutor does not do online tutoring.
