Meet the Tutors

Below you will find a list of our SUNY Schenectady tutors and the area(s) they specialize in. Most tutors are available without an appointment in the Learning Center, located in the Begley Learning Commons; simply view the Tutor Availability schedules below to find the best time to meet with someone.

1:1 Appointments in-person and online: If you prefer to meet with a tutor at a specific time and want to ensure a spot, you can also make an appointment with some of our tutors via Upswing by following this link: Simply log-in using your SUNY Schenectady email and password and search for the class you need a tutor for.

Upswing tutors (online) are also available for other content areas and are often available 24/7!

Booking reoccurring, semester-long appointments at the start of the semester is also highly encouraged and beneficial!
