A-LEC tutoring is a resource for all students, not just for those who find themselves in academic trouble. A-LEC tutoring is designed to complement and support students’ direct contact with their professors. Our aim is to connect you with a knowledgeable person with whom you can discuss the course material you are working on, whether your work is focused on a specific problem or on more general questions about how to study for the course. Over one hundred tutors, mostly upper-level undergraduates or graduate students, provide support for most first- and second-year courses, as well as many advanced courses. A-LEC tutoring is available at no charge to SMU undergraduates, and no appointment is necessary.
