About Tutoring at USM

Please feel free to drop by The Learning Commons in Portland or Gorham, or the Writing Center at Lewiston-Auburn College. If there is a tutor available, he or she will be happy to work with you. It is always best, though, to plan ahead and schedule an appointment in advance.This is especially true toward the end of the semester.

If you are familiar with how to schedule an appointment, click HERE to begin. If you are not sure how to use the scheduling system, or if you would like to see how to request an online tutoring session, please see below.

Through partnerships with academic departments at USM, we are able to offer tutoring in multiple subject areas at the Learning Commons. We are a peer support service, meaning that all of our tutors are current USM students.

Students are allowed two appointments per week per subject area. For example, a student can schedule two writing appointments as well as two math appointments. There are also some drop-in groups, which do not count towards the two appointments in that subject.

Appointments are available in Gorham, Portland, LAC, and online.
