Embedded Tutoring

Tutors can work with a specific class and its instructor to serve the needs of students in that particular course through regularly scheduled, out-of-class study sessions. This is known as embedded tutoring.

If you are interested in serving as an embedded tutor, contact the instructor of that class.

If you are an instructor interested in having an embedded tutor, please contact Mike Leib, Director of Tutoring, at (510) 659-6521 or for more information.
