Online Tutoring Mentoring Program

Program Information:

Need help with your Algebra or Calculus homework problem RIGHT NOW? Perhaps you have a Physics exam tomorrow and have a study question that no one at home can help you with. If this is you, or you simply have a question about becoming an Engineer or Engineering college student, then join the UCLA Engineering Online Tutoring & Mentoring Program. UCLA Engineering students are volunteer program tutors, and they are waiting to help you! Click on your school link below and post your question in the Tutorial Room or in the discussion forum now.

If you do not see a link with your school’s name below, then please enroll (it’s free!) in the “Bruin Open Community Classroom” for math and science help.

How do I get started?

  • Look for your school’s name and click on the link
  • Create a New Account
  • Confirm your account inside your email and enroll (room key is necessary)
  • You are now able to post your math and/or science questions
  • If you do not see your school listed, you may click on “Bruin Open Community Classroom (no room key is necessary)

Creating a new account is necessary for this online platform. There are no charges and all tutoring help is FREE. The Online Tutoring & Mentoring Program and the Engineering Science Corps Outreach Programs are sponsored by the Nicholas Endowment.

Most tutoring occurs inside the “Discussion Forums” within each school link. There are other useful tutoring tools as well, i.e. Tutorial Rooms and online whiteboards, for tutor/student “live” interaction. However, the Discussion Forums (Homework Wall) seemed to be the preferred communication between students and tutors.

Tutors normally respond to a posted student question within an hour. Students are encouraged to post their question (during the hours they are working on homework) and then return periodically to review a tutor’s response. Students may also “subscribe” themselves to their classroom/school’s Discussion Forum in order to receive email notifications when a tutor replies to their posted question(s).
