Polytechnic Tutoring Center

The Polytechnic Tutoring Center, often referred to simply as the "PTC," is dedicated to giving you the personalized attention you need to help you achieve your academic goals at the School of Engineering. Our services are available to all students, free of charge.

We offer tutoring in computer science, physics, chemistry and biology for first- and second-year undergraduate courses during the academic year.

We also provide writing, reading and English language help in our Writing Center to undergraduate and graduate students at all levels.

Our Vision:

The Polytechnic Tutoring Center (PTC) is committed to the overall academic excellence of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. The Polytechnic Tutoring Center enhances the academic experience of all students by partnering with committed faculty and well-trained peer and professional tutors to support students as they achieve academic success.

Our Mission:

The Polytechnic Tutoring Center (PTC) is committed to offering superior tutorial service in multiple first and second year subject areas by staying current with the best tutoring methodologies and technologies. We are dedicated to hiring and training well-qualified undergraduate peer tutors as well as professional writing consultants. The Polytechnic Tutoring Center maintains a caring, supportive, and encouraging academic support service to the School of Engineering community. We measure ourselves by how all the School of Engineering students are prepared to excel. The Polytechnic Tutoring Center continues to engage in partnerships across the Institute to develop other tutoring strategies, including but not limited to group tutoring, mid-term and final reviews, study skills workshops, and workshops on various aspects of effective written and oral communication.

Civility and Equality:

Civility can be described as the complex set of behaviors because of which people can live within a community composed primarily of strangers.  Civility can take both positive and negative forms; we adopt one negative principle of civility:  no behavior will be tolerated which infringes on the rights of others to learn and to teach.  A positive rule of civility might be the following:  whenever possible we should try to help others with their work in their courses.

We are dedicated to establishing a learning environment that promotes diversity of the students including race, class, culture, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and physical ability. It is important that we establish a safe learning environment. We commit to the practice of being considerate and respectful members of our academic community. Anyone noticing discriminatory behavior or who feels discriminated against in the PTC, should bring it to the director's or a staff member's attention immediately.
