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.

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.

Employment Opportunities

"Of all my experiences in NYU, nothing has shaped my identity quite like working at the PTC. Thank you so much for the opportunity to be part of the team. I’d be lucky to find another job half as gratifying as being a tutor." - Michael Russo, Physics Tutor and Team Leader
