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

The PTC is now open for the Fall 2022 semester.

There are three ways to access our tutorial services:

  • By far the most popular is in-person drop-in. No appointment is necessary. Come whenever you can and when the tutors are scheduled, sign in, and stay for however long you need. Just come to JAB 373.
  • If you are unable to get to campus, we are pleased to offer a limited number of hours for online drop-in tutoring using Zoom. No appointments are necessary.
  • If you would like your own one-on-one in-person appointment, you can come to the PTC in 6 MetroTech, JAB 373 or call us at 646-997-3425. 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. In order to cancel, we require a 24-hour notice.

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.  Times are subject to change based on tutor availability. All times listed are Daylight Savings Time.  For questions regarding our services, you can call us at 646-997-3425 or 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 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
