The Learning Den offers three free programs to all registered students in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and Whiting School of Engineering. These programs are drop-in tutoring that focuses on specific courses, help rooms to support specific departments, and personalized tutoring. Tutors can assist students with:

  • Review and strengthening of subject-specific material knowledge
  • Assist with homework-like problems
  • Course-specific study skills and exam preparation

Tutoring sessions being the second week of classes and run through the last week of classes with the exception of university holidays. Drop-in tutoring sessions are offered for 2 hours at a time, while personalized tutoring sessions are one hour long.

Tutors are not trained to teach class material, so be sure to come prepared, having attended class, reviewed your notes, and taken steps to study the material.
