FAQs

Services and Support
Tutoring is available on a one-on-one and small-group basis for students enrolled in most courses. English coaching for students working on papers for class or self-improvement is available Mondays-Thursdays from 9:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. and Fridays from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Please contact the Office for Students with Disabilities (OSWD) and explain the type(s) of accommodations needed.
To request tutoring services, please log-in to your Navigate portal to set up an appointment. If you have difficulty getting an appointment or would like to be a tutor, please contact us.
Opportunities Questions
A tutor is not a substitute for your teacher. You are expected to attend class regularly. For tutoring sessions, read your textbook and complete as much of your homework as possible. Come to the session with questions about your reading assignment or homework that you did not understand. You should bring your textbook, class notes, old test papers, class handouts, and any other supporting documents so the tutor is fully informed and can help you navigate couorse material and pinpiont areas to offer assistance.
Policies and Information
The Tutorial Center’s budget has to be justified by how well our services are used. The sign-in process helps us keep records of the usage of our services. In addition, the sign-in numbers tell us how students use the Tutorial Center, so that we can make changes and better serve the Gallaudet comomunity.
In accordance with the Academic Honesty Policy established by Gallaudet University, tutors and English coaches are not permitted to assist students with tests.
If you cannot make your scheduled tutoring session please email your tutor. Occasionally, the tutor may not see the email prior to the session. Be mindful that you are only permitted to cancel your tutoring sessions 3 times at the risk of being dropped from tutoring.
Common Questions
If you aren’t happy with a tutor, you can request to work with a different tutor or come in and discuss the situation with a Tutorial Center supervisor.
If a tutor or English coach edits or proofreads course work (and makes changes for the student), the student would not be presenting his or her own true work.
Tutoring through the Tutorial Center is a free academic support service for Gallaudet students.
