One-on-one Appointments

TSR2 One-on-One Appointments though Nimbus


The TSR2 provides one-on-one appointments for a variety of MIT courses, with a focus on first-year GIRs.

One-on-one appointments are easily requested via the Nimbus app (iOS or Android) and take place during the week or weekend via Zoom or in public spaces at MIT (classrooms, library, etc.).

  • Each student can request up to 3 hours of one-on-one appointments for a particular subject each week.
  • Students who schedule one-on-one appointments but fail to show up can be place on hold from using the service that term. If you cannot attend your appointment, make sure to contact us as soon as possible at tsr [at] (tsr[at]mit[dot]edu).


All TSR2-hosted virtual interactions require compliance with MIT's online conduct policies described here.

Out of respect for our facilitators' time, please do not miss appointments. After the second unexcused absence, you will be unable to make another one-on-one appointment for the term.
