PTC Hours of Operation

Our general office hours are Monday through Friday 10:00am to 6:00pm during the fall and spring semesters.  However, for specific course schedules please call us at 646-997-3425 or come by the PTC in JAB 373 for information.  Please keep in mind that schedules may vary according to tutor availability.  For questions regarding our services, you can email us at polytechnictutoring@nyu.edu


Subjects

The in-person PTC is appointment-based.  This means that students can come into the PTC in JAB 373 or call us at 646-997-3425 to make an appointment.  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 require a 24-hour notice to cancel your appointment.

We offer drop-in tutoring online using Zoom.  Students need the Zoom URL and passcode for their subject in each semester.  Drop-in tutoring means that you may log on without an appointment, at any time during the scheduled PTC hours. Tutors are available to answer questions or get you started on a homework problem. Tutors can go over material you are not clear on, either from class or from the textbook. They can also show you a variety of problem solving methods. You may attend drop-in online Zoom tutoring as often as you'd like.

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

Review Sessions for Midterm and Final Exams

PTC Review Sessions will help you prepare for your exams, and are very popular with students. Review sessions are held for courses including: CS1114, CS1134, PH1013, PH2023, PH2033, CM1004, CM1014 and CM1024. In a review session, you will practice solving problems on a “mock exam.” The tutor will then explain the problems and answer any questions you have about the material. Space is limited, so come to the PTC to sign up in advance for the review session you want. More Information
