You'll be matched with an advanced NIU student who has completed the College Reading and Learning Association tutor training. You and your tutor will decide when and where to meet. You're eligible for up to three hours of tutoring per week, per course. We recommend meeting with your tutor at least once a week.

For appointments in Founders Memorial Library 393, create an account in our online schedule system, then schedule your session. Be sure to select "PAL spring 2020 Founders Library" and then your course.
