College classes can be a challenge. Students sometimes need extra help with understanding textbook material and course concepts. Academic Support offers FREE peer tutoring to facilitate your academic success and help you strengthen your skills. We also offer FREE 24/7 professional online tutoring, provided by Tutor.com. You may request a tutor in various subjects. On-campus tutors are usually upper-level students who have been recommended by faculty.
Reasons you should consider working with a tutor:
- You are struggling with an academic concept
- You are performing poorly on assignments
- You need a refresher on essential skills for a specific course
- You want to improve your classroom performance
- You want to ensure you understand the material for an upcoming test
- You want to improve your grade in a class
- You want insight from a student who has already passed the class
Each tutoring session lasts a maximum of one hour, but multiple sessions can be scheduled in one week.
