Right now we are not requiring appointments. The calendar above lists tutoring times for each subject offered. Just consult the calendar for the subject in which you need tutoring, and come by during that time frame. We are open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

What can I expect from working with a tutor?
Along with a smiling face and an encouraging and comfortable environment, our tutors are here to help, but remember that they cannot do everything. These are a few things to keep in mind when you seek the help of tutors:

• Tutors will not do your homework.
• Tutors will not edit your essays for you.
• Tutors will help you review your work.
• Tutors will explain concepts, rules, and methods that you do not understand.

 

ONLINE TUTORING

For online tutoring, AC students have two options: NetTutor and the STAC. For 24-hour assistance, students may choose NetTutor. NetTutor is an option in each student’s Blackboard account.

Students may also call or email the STAC to request an online tutoring session with one of the STAC tutors. These online sessions are available from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday. The STAC conducts online tutoring via Blackboard Collaborate.
