D'Youville provides students with tutoring services -  free of charge.   

When should you sign up for tutoring? If you are earning C’s and you want to earn B’s and A's; if you find that your coursework is difficult to comprehend; or if you are failing tests and quizzes and are overwhelmed with the amount of work that you are required to complete, tutoring can help. 

Tutoring is most effective when it occurs consistently throughout the semester.
