Tutoring and Academic Support Services (TASS) helps undergraduate students raise the bar on their classroom performance by providing resources that open doors to academic success. TASS sets a new standard for academic support at UB, where you’ll find that asking for help is one of the smartest things you can do.

When you work with one of our tutors, you’ll find new ways to approach your studies and gain strategies to overcome the rigors of college-level work. We offer services to meet these needs and more. These services are free to all undergraduate students.

Expectations for tutoring and coaching appointments are as follows:

  • Arrive on time and be prepared for the tutoring appointment (have books, notes, questions etc).
  • If unable to make appointment, either re-schedule or cancel through the Navigate portal at least four hours prior to the appointment.
  • No-show three times, could result in loss of tutoring privileges.

If you need any assistance email asktutoring@buffalo.edu

Your health, safety and academic success are our highest priorities, and TASS is here for you! Continue to focus on your schoolwork and maintain a healthy schedule.
