Learning Support Services provides free tutoring and writing consultations to all actively-enrolled USFSM students. Tutoring is provided for a variety of courses and subjects such as, Accounting, Biology, Chemistry, Finance, Math & Statistics, Physics, and Spanish.
Students may choose between face-to-face or online tutoring, but must have the necessary technology support for online sessions. For writing consultations, students may choose between face-to-face or asynchronous e-appointments where they upload their documents to their sessions before the session starts and get feedback after an hour. Writing style guides for APA, MLA, Chicago style and other resources are also available under the “Helpful Resources” tab (click to access), on the right top corner under Information Commons.

Cancellations and No-Shows
Students may cancel appointments any time before their tutoring session starts by cancelling it on the scheduler (view instructions for cancelling appointments by clicking on download brief text tutorial) or by calling 941-359-4418 to cancel without penalty; however, we suggest that you cancel appointments as far in advance as possible to make sessions available to other students.
Appointments are held for 15 minutes after the beginning of the scheduled session after which it is cancelled and made available to students seeking walk-ins.
Students with three no-shows may be restricted from scheduling new appointments for the remainder of the semester.
