Tutors in Chemistry

Students in front of Rock Hall

Please note:

#1. Your current TA cannot be your tutor...

It is unallowable for a Graduate Student to tutor any student in a course which they are also TAing for in the immediate quarter. Should this occur, the graduate student and the undergraduate student will be promptly referred to Student Judicial Affairs.

For example: If you want a tutor for help in CHE 2A, you cannot be tutored by any graduate student who is currently TAing CHE2A.

#2. Department disclaimer

All tutors listed are Department of Chemistry graduate students or affliated with the department in some other capacity. All tutoring arrangements and agreements are strictly between the student and the tutor. The Department of Chemistry takes no responsibility for the quality of any tutoring experience or arrangements.
