How can I request a tutoring session?

You can request a tutoring session during any center’s hours of operation in two ways: walk-in and appointment.

A walk-in arrangement gives you the opportunity to receive tutoring assistance on the spot; whereas an appointment arrangement allows you to schedule a tutoring session on a day and at a time that work for you.  Please contact each center for more information.  For the PRISEM Center, please call 301-860-3999.
