Tutors

Tutors from the Rutgers Tutoring Plus program are often available in our Teen Room and/or Children's Room after school, to help with homework on all subjects for all grade levels. No appointment is necessary, but feel free to call ahead to ensure tutor availability. (732-745-5108 ext.15 for the Children's Reference Desk.) Tutors are only available when Rutgers is in session. Their usual hours are from 3:00 to 7pm Mondays - Thursdays and 3:00 to 5pm on Fridays, with occasional weekend hours.

For additional resources, here is a link to a database of state-approved supplemental educational service providers (also known as tutors).
