Request a Tutor

*Please note: SOME tutors are still undergoing the hiring process and are not permitted to begin working. You will be able to see them in the directory but are not able to request them at this time. Check back frequently on the GSBS Tutoring Blackboard course for an up-to-date listing of available tutors.

There are a few changes to the tutoring program for the 2017/2018 year. After completing a request for peer tutoring, you will be given access to the GSBS tutoring Blackboard course. This will allow you to review a directory of tutors and which courses they tutor. You will no longer be assigned a tutor for each course. This will allow you to work with tutors who have similar availabilities and can cater best to your learning style.

For Fall 2017 we have tutors for the following courses:

  • Microbiology
  • Cell Biology
  • Biochemistry and Molecular Biology -There is a new course director this semester. Your tutor may not be as familiar with the content for this course.
