Schedule A Tutoring Appointment

Before scheduling an appointment, please make sure to review our policies and expectations. To view the guidelines, please click HERE.

As a USM student, you can use our self-service online calendar to view available appointments and schedule a time with a tutor. You can also use the USM Quick Link in your "MyUSM" portal to access the calendar.

If new to the system, you will need to create an account. MAKE SURE TO DO SO WITH YOUR MAINESTREET EMAIL AND PASSWORD.

Students can choose from appointments on all three USM campuses, and also request that appointments be delivered live online. 

All appointments are 50 minutes in length to allow the tutor 10 minutes to prepare for the next appointment.

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 need assistance, please call The Learning Commons at 207-780-4228.
