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 tutoring in person in Library 220 and online 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. Read our Agreements for Tutoring Success to learn about what you can expect in your session.

Group Tutoring

We offer workshops, study sessions, and writing groups for students. Our discipline-specific workshops focus on success in a particular course or subject area while our academic skills workshops will help you develop foundational skills for continued academic success. We offer study sessions weekly for certain courses. If you’re interested in a writing community, we offer writing groups for both upper division and graduate students. Click here to see the schedule of offerings.

Writing Groups for Students

If you’d like to write in the company of other students, if you need some accountability, and/or if you’d rather write in a community with a tutor present to answer quick questions, then one of TASC’s writing groups might be just the thing for you. To find out more, click on the link below that fits where you are in your SF State journey.

Tutoring for Graduate Students

TASC offers tutoring for graduate students. Please fill out the request form below email us at tutoring@sfsu.edu to let us know what you need. If you want to work with a writing tutor, one of our writing faculty will reach out to schedule a brief, one-on-one meeting to find out more about you, what you are working on, and what kind of support you’d like. For information about the process, click here.
