Tutor Matching Service

Scheduling An Appointment

  1. Click the button to visit Tutor Matching Service below.
  2. Search for your Course Code (e.g. “PHY107” or “MTH112”)
  3. For free tutoring, look for a tutor that has an hourly rate listed with “or $0.” Students pay hourly rates beyond their 2 free weekly hours or for appointments for courses where free tutoring is not offered. Students will never be asked to enter payment account information for free tutoring.
  4. Click “View Tutor” to see the tutor’s profile. Courses with a green check mark under “SUBJECTS & COURSES” on the tutor profile can be booked for free tutoring.
  5. Click “BOOK OR MESSAGE TUTOR” at the top of the profile. If you haven’t created an account, you will need to do so. Be sure to set it up with your Bradley email address in order to access free tutoring.
  6. Complete the steps to request an appointment or contact the tutor to set up an alternate meeting time.

Please note that TMS is also our platform for paid, private tutoring. You may locate other tutors associated with Bradley University who are not employed by Bradley.

Online Tutoring

Online tutoring will take place using GoBoard. GoBoard meetings will be created when you book your tutoring appointment. At this time, we know GoBoard is compatible with PCs and Macs running Firefox or Chrome browser and on iPads. GoBoard is not yet compatible with Android devices.

If you are using an Android device, please let your tutor know so a Google Hangout meeting can be scheduled instead.
