AARC and Other Campus Tutorial Resources
Through the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning (VPTL), the Hume Center for Writing and Speaking, and various departments, there are many free tutoring resources for Stanford students.
All of these tutoring programs help students with any stage of learning (from brainstorming to concept mastery) and aid students who need help to pass a class as well as students who simply want to maximize performance and learning. To that end, tutors are expected to help students understand material and learn how to solve problems; tutors are not simply homework helpers. The tutoring offered through the AARC follows this Stanford tutoring model and student-athletes may avail themselves of 2 hours of tutoring per class per week for any reason.
AARC Drop-in Tutorial
AARC drop-in tutorials are designed for student-athletes with questions about chemistry, math, and computer science concepts. Tutors are equipped to address a range of questions and work with students in multiple courses.
The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) provides free subject tutoring and language conversation practice to all Stanford students.
CTL ADHD and LD Support Program
The CTL ADHD and LD Support Program provides eligible students with dedicated academic coaching and tutoring to address their unique educational needs and help them become self-directed learners.
To be eligible for this program, students must be referred by their Disability Advisor at the Office of Accessible Education (OAE). The Disability Advisor verifies that the student is registered with the OAE with a documented learning disability or ADHD.
Students will meet regularly with a dedicated Academic Coach. Academic Coaches help students with a wide range of academic skills, such as time management, studying for exams, staying motivated, and overcoming procrastination. During their first meeting with the Academic Coach, the student and the coach will decide how frequently to meet. Students typically meet with their coach weekly.
