Through the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning (VPTL), the Hume Center for Writing and Speaking, and various departments, there are many free tutoring resources for Stanford students.
All of these tutoring programs help students with any stage of learning (from brainstorming to concept mastery) and aid students who need help to pass a class as well as students who simply want to maximize performance and learning. To that end, tutors are expected to help students understand material and learn how to solve problems; tutors are not simply homework helpers. The tutoring offered through the AARC follows this Stanford tutoring model and student-athletes may avail themselves of 2 hours of tutoring per class per week for any reason.
