Meet the Tutors

Below you will find a list of our SUNY Schenectady tutors and the area(s) they specialize in. You can make an appointment with these tutors or see if they’re “available now” on Upswing by following this link: Simply log-in using your SUNY Schenectady email and password.

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

We encourage you make appointments with our tutors, but also “walk-in” during their availability if you need assistance right away. Booking reoccurring, semester-long appointments at the start of the semester is also highly encouraged and beneficial!

For a helpful step-by-step video on how to make an appointment and what an online session looks like, view our how-to video:
