ACE Frequently Asked Questions

When should I get tutoring?

As soon as possible! Don't wait until the day (or day before) a paper is due or your test is held to get the help you need. You may find the content more difficult than you thought or that there aren't tutors available at the time you need.

What should I bring with me?

Bring a copy of the assignment or problem(s), your book, any work you have done, and some good questions for the tutor.

How much does it cost?

Nothing! ACE is free to all full-time and part-time credit students.

How do I meet with a tutor?

You don't need an appointment to meet with a tutor. If you prefer to block out a specific time, however, stop by the ACE or call 203-596-8717 to set up a 30 minute one-on-one tutoring session.

How often can I come?

You may only make two appointments per week per subject with a tutor. However, you may receive help on a drop-in basis at any time during posted hours. See the subject links on the left-hand side for specific information regarding appointment and drop-in policies.
