Tutoring

Even with Miami’s transition to remote learning, the Rinella Learning Center is here to excel in our mission to support students academically.

We are thrilled to provide remote options for students seeking content-specific assistance:

  • Rinella Learning Center Peer Tutoring: Remote tutoring is by appointment only and is facilitated by highly-trained peer Miami University tutors. RLC peer tutoring allows students to seek help from fellow students who have completed coursework at Miami and have excelled in their subject area.
  • Tutor.com Staff Tutoring: Supplemental remote tutoring is offered through professional tutors through our partnership with Tutor.com. This option is available to students 24/7 and is beneficial when you have an immediate question or concern at any time of day, or if you are unable to find an appointment with a RLC tutor.

ALL of these options are completely FREE for Miami University students. Students are also encouraged to reach out for academic coaching as they move to remote work. RLC is prepared to help students succeed during this transition!

See below for instructions on how to access each of these services.

How to Access RLC Peer Tutoring

Students may schedule in-person tutoring sessions with RLC tutors during normal office hours of Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Online appointments with RLC tutors will vary and may include tutoring availability during the day, in the evenings, or during weekend hours. You can access RLC Tutoring by utilizing the TutorTrac scheduling system. To schedule with a RLC tutor, please visit cli.miamioh.edu and follow the scheduling instructions on screen. From the drop-down menu, select whether you want an in-person or online appointment and search for available times. If you do not see appointment times that fit your schedule, try searching the other tutoring availability. In-person tutoring sessions will take place in Shriver Center, Room 308. For online tutoring sessions, you will log on to the TutorTrac homepage 5-10 minutes prior to your appointment, and a Zoom link will be available to log on to the session. Additionally, you can revisit the Tutortrac page if you ever need to change or cancel an appointment.
