Services for Students
The tutors at TASC care about you and about what and how you learn. They are trained to assist you in completing specific assignments while you strengthen your overall academic skills and make progress toward your goal of graduating.
TASC is offering online tutoring via Zoom. You can schedule appointments as needed, or you can request a weekly appointment to meet regularly with the same tutor. Tutoring is free for all SF State students and is available for many subjects.
