SPS Tutoring for Physics Majors

In need of physics tutoring?

The Society of Physics Students (SPS) offers a free online tutoring program for anyone taking an introductory physics course at UMD. Tutoring is available on a drop-in basis through Zoom from 4-6pm, Monday through Thursday. In order to request the Zoom information, students must fill out the following brief form: https://forms.gle/oJwX2pqXD586MNJE6. Join our Zoom sessions to get help with homework or general questions about course material!

Want to tutor?

Looking to get community service hours for applications? (You need it for the NSF fellowship! And it always looks good on your CV and other applications!) Want to review the fundamentals of physics? (You need it for the GRE! Or just as a refresher, for those you who already survived the GRE!) Just want to give back to the UMD physics community? (You need it for the warm, fuzzy feeling it gives you!)

The physics department has a volunteer tutoring program. Any student who has taken at least PHYS272 (or an equivalent course) and is able to effectively tutor introductory subjects is eligible to become an SPS tutor. If you wish to become a tutor, you should fill out the availability form, found here: https://forms.gle/uty2Th9PfFTixX3SA.

If you have any questions about the program or your eligibility to become a tutor, reach out to Kate Sturge at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
