The Department of Computer Science offers FREE in-person tutoring for students enrolled in CSC courses during the fall and spring semesters. If you need extra support on assignments, want to check your understanding of CS concepts, or just want that little bit of help, stop by our Tutor Center for help. Our undergraduate tutors have successfully completed CS courses and can help guide you to success.
Location: Gould-Simpson, Room 914
Mondays - Thursdays
*The Tutor Center is closed on university holidays, spring break, winter closure, and summer. The Tutor Center may offer limited tutoring during final exam week, but depends on staffing.
CS tutoring is offered in-person only. You can sign-up to attend tutoring ahead of time here (only active when Tutor Center is open).
Freya is a junior pursuing the BA in Computer Science with a minor in Information Science and eSociety and the Undergraduate Certificate in Cybersecurity. Freya joined the Tutor Center in spring 2022. Freya joined the Tutor Center because she wanted to help others and use the opportunity to practice her programming skills. Freya enjoys tutoring because "I love watching students gain that sudden moment of relief when they suddenly understand something they have been struggling with". Freya can tutor for CSC 101, 110, 120, 210, 252, and 345.
An interesting tidbit - Freya participates in the St Patrick's Day parade as a member of the Desert Irish Wolfhound Association.
