Point of Contact: Shaina Gonzalez, Academic Enhancement Coordinator

***8/5/2020 UPDATE: The Vet-to-Vet Tutoring Program is going virtual for Fall 2020! Both tutors and students being tutored will have the ability to conduct all meetings remotely via Microsoft Teams***

The veteran tutoring program was developed to provide FREE tutoring to USF veteran students by providing knowledgeable veteran tutors. The program started in November of 2013 and has helped many veterans improve their academic performance.

VETERAN STUDENTS:

This program is different than any other tutoring program available to you on campus. You will be tutored on an individual basis by a qualified tutor who is knowledgeable in the subject area you need tutoring in, and is a Veteran themselves or related to a Veteran. The tutoring will not cost you anything but your time and commitment to succeed. 

If we do not have a tutor for the subject in which you need assistance, please still complete the Tutor Request Form and we will attempt to locate a qualified tutor for you.
