Tutoring

Assistance with Course Work

Point Park Tutoring Services provides professional and peer tutors for students who seek tutoring in their course work. In addition, students may receive assistance with effective study strategies, such as organization, time management, note taking technique, and exam preparatino.

Point Park Tutoring Services makes a reasonable effort to meet the tutoring needs of students in a wide variety of undergraduate courses. However, we may not be able to honor every request due to limited student and/or tutor availability.

Tutortrac, a scheduling software, can be accessed through Point Web.  This system will allow you to schedule one-on-one tutoring appointments, as well as drop-in services. For questions please contact Natacia Owens, Student Success Coordinator for Tutoring Services, at 412-392-8132 or tutoring@pointpark.edu, or visit the Center for Student Success (West Penn Building, fifth floor).
