Tutoring services cover course-specific material in interactive group sessions for many undergraduate core courses, with an emphasis on first-year and second-year classes in the schools of science and engineering.
Drop-in tutoring provides opportunities for undergraduates to review class material with graduate and undergraduate tutors proficient in the course topics. The goal is to help students become independent learners by having tutors guide them through solving practice problems while demonstrating strategies for exploring a topic. Their role is not to provide answers, but rather to help students understand questions and identify methods for solving them.
Drop-In Tutoring Schedule -
During the fall, spring, and summer semesters Drop-in tutoring sessions are offered for selected courses in the schools of science and engineering. During the summer semesters all tutoring is scheduled on a Small Group basis.
- If you need assistance with a 1000-level or 2000-level course that is NOT listed below - please contact Sharon McGrath at email@example.com and include the course number and course title.

The Rensselaer academic experience brings many new and exciting challenges to some of the finest young minds in the world. For such students, high school work may have been easy, with no need to study or to think about how to study. The more challenging college curriculum, though, may require learning new skills to adapt to the new circumstances. Academic support is also available for students referred by Rensselaer’s Office of Disability Services.
Here you will find exectuive functioning information and tips that can help you during your online learning.
The Learning Assistant (LA) is a Rensselaer student who is responsible for assisting first-year students in becoming active, independent and successful learners. LA's are assigned to a specific residence hall where they reside and assume responsibility for interacting frequently with the residents of that hall and providing academic-related programs, information and assistance. The LA provides a direct academic support service and acts as a liaison between Advising and Learning Assistance Center and their undergraduates.
