Tutoring Center

The University Tutoring Center provides comprehensive tutoring focused on helping students excel in their courses.

Tutoring is free and open to Robert Morris University students on a first-come, first-served basis. One-on-one tutoring services are available during the fall, spring, and summer terms. Our Peer Tutors are students who excelled in RMU courses and were recommended by their faculty. Peer Tutors are available to have appointments scheduled with them (both virtual or in-person) through Navigate or students can utilize drop-in peer tutoring hours listed below. RMU students may also access professional tutors online, 24/7, through Brainfuse.

Drop-In Peer Tutoring

  • The Tutoring Center is located in Nicholson Center 277 (on the second floor by the student mailboxes) as well as in the Library IDC room (see schedule for details).
  • Students can access drop-in peer tutoring by visiting the Tutoring Center Monday through Thursday from 9AM to 6PM.
  • Please refer to the Spring 2023 Schedule for a list of courses that peer tutors are available to tutor this semester as well as the time slots/days tutors are scheduled for each course.
  • Students who would prefer to meet with a peer tutor virtually may schedule this through Navigate.
