Spring 2020 Tutoring

Below, please find our list of tutors for the semester and their tutoring times.

During the University's online class instruction period between these tutors will be available via email at their normally scheduled office hours. This will start on Monday, March 30th and continue until final exams begin. If requested by a student, and if the tutor is comfortable doing so, tutoring can be arranged through video conferencing via Google Hangout video, Zoom, or Webex

In tutor video conferencing, students and tutors should do the following:
  • Dress and act appropriately during the meeting.
  • Remove any inappropriate or potentially offensive artwork, posters, 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 cannot be heard by others or that is distracting to the student 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 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.
