Tutoring is offered free of charge to all students enrolled in courses offered by the Knight Foundation School of Computing and Information Sciences. Our tutors are undergraduate and graduate students who have generously volunteered their time to help others. While we hope that you find our tutors helpful, please keep in mind that tutoring should not be relied upon as a primary source of education.
