Vet to Vet Tutoring

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 several 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 you are having difficulty in a class and would like to be tutored in an individual setting, please complete the Tutor Request Form. If we do not have a tutor for the subject in which you need assistance, please complete the Tutor Request Form and we will attempt to locate a qualified tutor for you.
