Due to a high volume of spammers our tutor list has been removed. Please contact Cindy Knight and she will be happy to assist you.

The list of tutors for the Chemistry Department is updated each semester.

All tutors must have a GPA of at least 3.0 and a B or higher in the chemistry course(s) you wish to tutor in.

If you are in need of a tutor, we suggest you email one or more of the students listed. Be sure to include the course for which you are seeking a tutor, as some of the tutors are listed for more than one course.  It is important to include days/times that are convenient for you so that the potential tutor can check his/her schedule and know if they are available.  Time, place, payment, etc., is between you and the tutor though we highly suggest a public place like the library.  Due to a high volume of spammers please use or include your computing ID when you email our tutors.

If you are interested in being added to our list of tutors or have any questions, please contact Cindy Knight.
