How do I schedule a session with a tutor?

Request a tutor through our online tutor appointment system. If you have any questions, contact the ELI office by emailing eng-tutoring@cornell.edu, or stopping by 167 Olin Hall between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm.

What will I get out of being a tutor?

Working with student clients benefits the tutors in that they receive a salary, deepen their understanding of the material by learning how to communicate it to others, and develop skills that are attractive to potential employers.

What is a Study Jam?

Held prior to each core preliminary exam, Study Jams are group tutoring sessions targeted to women and underrepresented minority students in undergraduate engineering. Here students can review fundamental concepts while gaining insight into more advanced topics in a less formal, more cooperative setting than in the course lecture.
