Types of Tutoring

The Tutoring and Learning Center utilizes the Accudemia Scheduling System, which allows students to work with subject tutors or general writing tutors in person or online for real-time tutoring appointments.

Students looking for tutoring support for a paper are also able to request a Writing Dropbox appointment. These appointments allow students to get feedback on their writing via asynchronous written comments. Students upload their paper(s) for tutors to read and provide feedback on (students do not attend appointments ). 

We provide several different ways for students to learn material.

One-on-One Appointment Tutoring

Appointment tutoring is perfect for students who have several questions, or would like more intensive assistance. Students can schedule up to one hour per day, and up to three hours per week in appointments. 

All in-person tutoring appointments are held on the first floor of the Learning Commons at the Dandini Campus, and the online appointments take place via our scheduling system. 

Forgot to make an appointment? No problem! Walk-in to the Tutoring Center and if there is an available tutor, we will make an appointment for you on the spot, or you may have the option of joining a session already in progress.

Note: You must be currently enrolled at TMCC in the class for which you are receiving tutoring.
