Tutor Matching Service

While we encourage students to use on-campus or ASC tutoring for courses that we support (as listed in StudyHub), we are excited to promote our partnership with Tutor Matching Service (TMS). TMS is a fee-based, online tutor marketplace that allows students to identify tutors and book online  sessions in a variety of courses. Tutors set their own rates. Students pay TMS with a credit card. Visit TMS online to locate the TAMU campus list of tutors
 

Activate a Tutor Profile on TMS


If you would like to create a tutor profile on TMS, you must be a current student at Texas A&M University. We can send you the requirements and steps to complete to activate your profile. Email asctutorhub@tamu.edu from your @tamu email with the subject line: TMS Profile.

Frequently Asked Questions


The ASC has identified a number of courses that will be offered in the 30-minute and 1-hour appointment format. This list of courses will be updated prior to each semester. Be sure to check as it is possible that additional courses could be added during the semester.
If you do not see your course listed, look at the other academic support resources to see if other on-campus departments support your course. If not, see if your course is offered through Tutor Matching Service.
We want to ensure that both you and your ASC tutor can can easily keep track of appointments, adequately prepare for the tutoring session, receive appointment reminders, and receive notifications if the appointment is cancelled by the tutor.
If the ASC offers support in a course your are taking, you can schedule your appointment through Navigate, either from a laptop or the Navigate app. For detailed directions on how to schedule an appointment, see the step-by-step guide. Your appointment confirmation contains information about the day, time, and specific location of your appointment.  If your appointment is in either the Leach Learning Center in Zachry or Evans Library, your confirmation will indicate a specific room number or location description, such as open area outside the University Writing Center. If your appointment is online, you will be provided a zoom link. 
You will be able to book an appointment 2 weeks in advance and up to 1 hour before the appointment start time. Waiting until the day of the appointment may result in no availability for your course. If that is the case, move through the days until you find an appointment time. We do expect that some courses will have a higher demand than other courses. We strongly encourage you to make an appointment as far in advance as possible.

30-Minute appointments: these appointments may be offered in-person or virtual. A 30-minute appointment is ideal if you have a quick question or questions that you believe can be answered in a shorter period of time. Not all courses listed have 30-minute appointments.

1-Hour appointments: The ASC has identified a number of 1st and 2nd year courses that will be offered in the 1-hour appointment format. This type of appointment is ideal if you have questions or concepts that take longer work processes and work through. These 1-hour appointments are focused only on one course so other students in the same appointment are also enrolled in the same course. This is an excellent opportunity to not only work with a tutor, but other students who are also taking the same course.  Not all courses listed have 1-hour appointments.

Prepare ahead of time and come with specific questions/goals. Be sure to have attempted any problems. When you make your appointment, provide a brief description of the type of problem, concept or even the specific question. This will help the tutor have an idea of how to support you during the session.

In Navigate, locate the tutor appointment you wish to cancel and provide a reason. Select Mark as Cancelled.

Be mindful that there are more students wanting help than there are available appointments. If you need to cancel, do so as far in advance as possible but at minimum 24 hours before your scheduled appointment. This provides another Aggie the opportunity to get the help they need. Cancelling less than hour before your appointment can result in suspension of tutor appointment privileges.

No Show Policy

30-Minute appointments: after 10 minutes, appointment will be marked as a no-show

1-Hour appointments: after 15 minutes, appointment will be marked as a no-show

Students who have two no-shows will be prohibited from making additional appointments until they have consulted with a member of the ASC tutoring staff. To remove the block, email: asctutorhubs@tamu.edu with an explanation of why you no-showed both appointments. Reinstatement of the ability to make additional appointments will be made on a case-by-case basis. Students who have more than 4 missed appointments within the same semester, will be prohibited from making additional appointments for that semester.

There may be a few reasons that you are unable to see appointments for your course:

  • There are no available appointments for the date you selected. Try selecting another date.
  • ​There are no available appointments for the meeting type you selected. We recommend selecting both meeting types to view all options.
  • ​The available times overlap with your scheduled classes or common exam time.
  • ​Some courses have limited availability and have already been booked. Keep checking back as cancellations do happen.


 

ASC tutors will not solve your homework problems. ASC tutors can help you understand, learn, and apply concepts and processes that are found in homework problems. ASC tutors will not help you with labs and/or exams.

It is important to understand your professor's policies regarding working with others in the completion of assigned work. ASC tutors will report suspected honor code violations.
