Appointments and Drop-in Schedule

For most subjects, you need to make an appointment. But for some, you have the option of stopping by our multiple drop-in locations (see chart below). At drop-in sessions, you can come and go as you like. Multiple tutors at each session mean you can often get individual attention when you need it, or just work with others knowing that tutors are nearby to answer questions.

Appointments are available in Autumn, Winter, and Spring Quarters, from the Sunday of week two until the last day of classes, for courses in which you’re enrolled.

Courses and Drop-in Schedule

There will be no tutoring during Thanksgiving Break, November 19-26. Tutoring will resume on Monday, November 27. The last day of Autumn Quarter tutoring is Friday, December 8, 2017.

Appointment Instructions and Troubleshooting

Appointment Instructions

  • Log in with your SUNet ID
  • Search availability
  • Select either “VPTL: Foreign Language Practice” or “VPTL: Subject Appointments” from drop-down menu
  • Indicate the course in which you need help
  • Hit the “Search” button
  • Choose the date and time you would like to book

24-hour Advance Notice for Cancellations

To cancel your appointment, use the appointment system at least 24 hours in advance. When you log in, you'll see your upcoming appointments listed; press the "X" next to the one you want to cancel. In an emergency, with less than 24 hours' notice, e-mail us at tutoringhelp@stanford.edu and your LCP directly.

Troubleshooting Problems

  • If you don't see any available appointments, it could be that all appointments in the upcoming 7 days are already taken. Be sure to check back, though, since students can only book 7 days in advance.
  • If you don't see your course listed at "Choice Required," remember that you must be enrolled in the course for which you are seeking help. If you've recently changed your courses, it'll take a few days for our system to be updated.7878
