Tutoring Services FAQs

Who is eligible for Tutoring?

Students must be currently enrolled in the developmental or college-level credit course for which they are requesting a tutor. Services are provided during the academic term for which students are enrolled.


How do I sign up for tutoring appointments?

Complete the Tutoring Request Form using Firefox or Chrome. (Internet Explorer will not work.) Students can have three 50-minute appointments per week.


So what other types of tutoring do you offer besides appointments?

Tutoring provides "Drop-in" sessions for a variety of subjects like Chemistry, Math, Accounting, A&P, and Foreign Languages where no appointment is needed. We also offer Strategic Success Sessions for study skills help. All services are free!


Where will my sessions be?

Most sessions take place in the Learning Commons - SRC 2102. Some may occur elsewhere on the Main Campus or at the COD centers. We also have online tutoring for select subjects using "Ask a Peer Tutor".


How can a tutor help me?

Tutors can clarify points from lectures, labs, discussions, or assigned readings. Tutors will show students how to become independent learners; however, tutors cannot complete homework for students or grade assignments.


What should I bring to my session?

Come prepared. Bring your syllabus, textbook, notes, and any questions you have. Tutoring is most effective when you are prepared.


How do tutors accommodate students with disabilities?

Every effort is made to secure free professional tutoring for students with disabilities who require specialized assistance and have documentation of the disability on file in Center for Access and Accommodations. 


Are the tutors good?

Yes, they are amazing and proficient in their subjects. They know their stuff!
