Supplemental Instruction is not currently offered. 
No. However, our Peer Tutors offer a broad range of appointment times, 8 AM - 9 PM, seven days per week. If your course's Peer Tutor has hours of availability that conflict with your schedule, or if you're unable to attend your course's SI session, please e-mail the Interim Tutoring Coordinator, Haley Shettles, at or the ARC at We may be able to arrange for a Peer Tutor to meet with you outside of their regularly scheduled Tutoring hours.

Your best resource is always your professor, regardless of whether a Peer Tutor is available. All Manhattanville faculty hold regular office hours to provide additional help to students. The office hours schedule should be listed on your course syllabus. Depending on your professor's preference, you can either stop by his/her office hours or make an appointment to review the course materials.

Additionally, please let us know that you're looking for help by completing this Tutor Request Form. We will do our best to recruit a Peer Tutor for your course. However, please note that we will not hire Peer Tutors after Week 7 of the semester.

Peer Tutors are trained to work with students on subject-specific material, including practice problems, study guides, and note taking or study strategies. As such, they do not typically help students with writing assignments. However, the Writing Center offers free appointments Monday 10 AM-8 PM, Tuesday 10 AM-9 PM, Wednesday 11 AM-7 PM, Thursday 11 AM-8 PM and Friday 10 AM-2 PM. Please see the Writing Center website for more information.

All students are welcome in SI review and Peer Tutoring sessions. Our staff is trained to help students of all abilities. If you are comfortable sharing your learning needs with the Tutor or SI, we recommend that you do so in order to ensure that we are able to most effectively help you. We maintain strict confidentiality and will not share your information with anyone, including professors.
