The Keystone Center is located in room 1215 of the J.M. Patterson Building.

The Keystone Center is a place where you can go to work on homework or group projects, use the computer labs, or study for exams. It will be staffed with upper-level undergraduate and graduate students who can provide you with assistance in answering questions in fundamental engineering and STEM courses. 

Hours of Operation

Please see your ENES 100/A, 102, 220, 221, 232 or BIOE120 course syllabi for details about the times UTFs will be available, and below for our tutors in CHEM135 and MATH courses. Typically for ENES courses, the Keystone Center is open Sundays from 4-10pm and Mon/Tue/Thurs from 7-10pm in JMP 1215.

Keystone Tutoring Program

Tutoring is available during the fall and spring semesters for CHEM135, MATH140, MATH141, MATH241, and MATH246. Office hours usually begin the second week of classes each semester and end on the last day of classes per the University's academic calendar.

In order to ensure a tutor will be available to assist you in the course you need help in, be sure to check the course syllabi. To receive the best support possible, please have your course textbook with you.

You can also receive course assistance in physics classes by visiting the Physics department's designated Academic Support page, and in your math classes, through the Department of Mathematics Undergraduate Tutoring program or the campus' Math Success Program.

Other campus-wide tutoring is listed at www.tutoring.umd.edu and Clark School of Engineering departmental services are listed at eng.umd.edu/tutoring-resources.

The Learning Success Team at the Teaching and Learning Transformation Center can be contacted at learn@umd.edu. Their Guided Study Sessions Program can be directly at https://tltc.umd.edu/students/get-help-class/guided-study-sessions.



During the fall and spring semesters, if requested by a student and if the tutor is comfortable doing so, tutoring can also be arranged through video conferencing via Zoom

In tutor video conferencing, students and tutors should do the following:
  • Dress and act appropriately during the meeting.
  • Use your full name (first and family names) on the screen. 
  • Remove any inappropriate or potentially offensive artwork, pictures, etc., from your background.
  • Please attempt to maintain privacy during these meeting times through the use of headphones or private rooms. In other words, try not to be in a location where your conversation can be heard by others or that is distracting to the others or tutor.
  • Allow a reasonable amount of time for the tutor to answer your emails. If they do not answer within 24 hours, please contact keystone@umd.edu
  • If at any time you feel uncomfortable with the person or the conversation during a virtual meeting, inform the them you are discontinuing the session then shut off the video. Inform Dr. Nicole Roop (nroop@umd.edu) immediately of these situations.
