Tutoring for Residential Students
COVID-19 Update: Tutoring Services has provided a way for our tutors to connect with you virtually through Microsoft Teams. If you prefer to not attend tutoring in person, prefer to not wear a face mask, or if you are unable to wear a face mask due to medical concerns, please schedule a virtual tutoring appointment. There will be in-person tutoring options for some classes as well, but due to the sizes of our tutoring spaces, 6 feet of distancing cannot be maintained in the tutoring appointments. For in-person appointments, both you and your tutor will need to wear a face mask for the appointment. Please see the section below titled “Tutoring Appointments” for the Instructional Resources on how to schedule an appointment and navigate Microsoft Teams.
Tutoring is available during the fall and spring semesters at no additional cost to Liberty University residential undergraduate students currently enrolled in the course for which they are seeking tutoring. Tutoring Services employs academically excellent students who have a desire to help you do your best in your classes. Courses offered include accounting, biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, math, psychology, American Sign Language, French, Spanish, and more.
One-on-one tutoring is provided for all available courses so that you can receive individualized help from your tutor regarding any course content you want to learn, discuss, or review.
Group tutoring is offered for certain courses to meet a high-demand for tutoring. Group tutoring provides a safe atmosphere for you to learn alongside your fellow classmates.

“The tutors were very positive and uplifting and never made me feel embarrassed about not understanding even simpler topics. They are human, too, and they are passionate about helping every student they come in contact with. I did not have a single negative experience with any of the tutors I went to (and I went to several different ones over the course of this semester). With regular appointments, I could definitely tell a difference in not only my grades, but my confidence in my work and study habits as well.” – Kensley
“I appreciated the virtual option this semester since I had decided to take my classes from home. I still received the same treatment I would have in person. My tutors were helpful and kind even through a screen!” – Katelyn
“I would recommend going to the tutor for everyone, and encouraging them that they should not be embarrassed or scared to go like I was my first semester coming here. The teachers want you to succeed, and the tutors are really nice and not intimidating at all.” – Anna
“Tutoring is an incredible resource. As a junior this year, I have used the tutoring services more than ever. I have not only made new friends in the group tutoring sessions, but my grades have improved, and I found a core study group because of tutoring. The tutors are enjoyable, relatable, fun, and they excel in knowledge in their specific subjects. I am thankful that this is a free resource. It has truly developed me into a more diligent student and made my year less stressful.” – Larissa
