In addition to SLAC’s in-house tutorial services, our Private Tutor Referral Program provides students with easy access to qualified tutors in as many academic areas as possible. Students in need of tutoring can contact the SLAC office at (512) 245-2515, the SLAC lab at (512) 245-2996, or submit a request online. After filling out a short form to learn the caller’s identity and purpose, SLAC’s personnel will furnish names and phone numbers of qualified tutors. If students submit the request electronically, they will receive an email with this information within 24 hrs. excluding weekends. The student contacts the tutor and asks if the tutor can help the student in the requested content area. If the tutor can help the student, then she or he agrees to meet at a designated place and time. We ask that the initial meeting be in the library. Please note that the private tutor service is not a free service. Each private tutor sets her/his own rate. It is important for the student and tutor to agree on a rate before their tutoring session.
