COMS Tutoring Services
Tutoring is free for all enrolled CSUN students. Individual and group tutoring is offered. Students need to sign-in during the tutoring session. The tutors help students by answering questions, reviewing materials, explaining concepts, repeating ideas until they are understood and remembered, and finally by modeling good study habits.
All Tutors are hired for their knowledge of specific topics and abilities to effectively communicate. All tutors in COMS are graduate students working on their Master’s degrees. Tutors must have received either an "A" or a "B"in order to tutor courses that they have taken or obtain a written referral from their professor.
Tutoring by appointment
Students are scheduled with tutors for any length of time. In most cases, each student is allowed as many sessions as needed.Sessions are scheduled depending on tutors and students’ availability.
