Tutoring Services

Every academic year, over 7,000 tutoring appointments take place at Villanova University. Our numerous tutoring centers and nearly 300 highly-trained peer tutors are here to help with everything from exam prep in a specific content area to designing and executing the perfect in-class presentation.

Students seek tutoring for a wide array of reasons. Some come for support with a challenging course; others come to reach new levels of achievement in subject areas in which they already excel. All peer tutoring is done in a spirit of mutual collaboration—both tutor and student learn through the tutoring process. Available to Villanova students, tutoring services are free of charge.
