COVID-19 Update: The ARC will conduct all appointments and other tutoring sessions remotely through the end of the Spring 2020 semester. Appointments will be available on Tutor Finder as usual, but sessions will be conducted via Zoom, WebEx or another free online platform. After you sign up, your consultant or tutor will follow up with instructions on accessing your session. For information about how drop-in hours and other sessions will work, please see the page for the program you are looking for. If you are not able to log in to Tutor FInder for any reason, email to be connected with someone who can set up an appointment for you.

We offer one-on-one consultations in writing and time management and study strategies, as well as tutoring for introductory-level courses in sciences, math, economics, computer science and foreign languages. We also offer group sessions, including study groups in the sciences, various writing groups, courses for multilingual students, and workshops. Our programs promote engaged, collaborative learning that build on your strengths while addressing your concerns and questions.


What We Offer

Who We Support

Our programs are based primarily on the Medford campus and are open to all students in A&S, SoE, GSAS, and the SMFA. We also offer Writing Support consultations on the SMFA Fenway campus

No-Show Policy (as of 2/20): After two no-shows or last-minute cancellations in a semester, students will be blocked from making further Tutor Finder appointments until after meeting with an ARC program director. "Last minute" is defined as any cancelation made 6 hours or less before the start of the appointment time. Please make every effort to attend your scheduled appointments or cancel more than 6 hours before the start of the appointment. (To cancel an appointment, please log in to Tutor Finder, scroll down to this page to see your upcoming sessions, and click the "cancel" button next to the appointment you need to cancel.) Drop-in hours will not be included in this count -- students may attend drop-in hours without appointments. Email with questions.
