Polytechnic Tutoring Center

Our services are available to all NYU undergraduate students, free of charge.

The PTC is now open for the Fall 2021 semester.

For all in-person tutoring in the PTC, we offer appointment-based tutoring.  This will naturally facilitate social distancing by limiting the number of tutors and students inside the PTC at any one time.  For those who are on campus, we highly encourage in-person appointments, as you will have access to individualized tutoring. We recommend planning ahead so that you can secure your appointment.  Online tutoring is drop-in and is facilitated using open and recurring Zoom sessions with one link and passcode for the entire semester for each of major subject areas for which we offer tutoring. Students do not need to make an appointment to attend the online Zoom sessions.

For in-person appointments in the PTC, students need to either come into the PTC in JAB 373 or call us at 646-997-3425 to make an appointment using our AccuTrack system; we do not make appointments by email.  Appointments are up to 50-minutes in length, and all appointments start on the hour.  Students can make up to three appointments per day in different subjects and up to 15 appointments per week, but we do not allow back-to-back appointments within the same subject area.  Students’ access to appointments will be restricted if they exceed five cancellations or no-shows within a semester.

We also have study spaces in the PTC for self-study during our hours of operation, and no appointment is necessary.

Please check the schedule grids below for times available for the courses.  The top schedule grid is the in-person appointment schedule.  The bottom schedule grid in italics is the online drop-in Zoom schedule.  Times are subject to change based on tutor availability. All times listed are Daylight Saving Time.  For questions regarding our services, you can email us at polytechnictutoring@nyu.edu

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.  We are located in 6 MetroTech Center, JAB 373.


Our general office hours are Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm during the fall and spring semesters.  However, for specific course schedules please call us at 646-997-3425 or come by the PTC for information.

We offer tutoring in computer science, physics, chemistry and biology for first- and second-year undergraduate courses.  We are a College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA) Level 1 certified program.

*The PTC no-longer provides writing services. For all writing services, we encourage you to visit the Tandon Writing Center, offered by NYU's Expository Writing Program, where you can work closely with a faculty consultant or experienced undergraduate peer tutor. You can bring with you any piece of writing (except for exams) from an essay to a lab report, at any stage of the writing process. For more information, please see EWP's Writing Center information page, and to make an appointment, please click here.
