The MCC Academic Success Center offers free tutoring for students. Tutoring is provided by appointment for a variety of subjects including English language learning. Tutoring is available Monday - Friday (hours vary) and on Saturday 9am-2pm in the Library/Learning Commons.
Tutors are professional tutors, peer tutors and English professors. The weekly tutor schedule lists tutors, their subjects and the times they are available.
If you want a tutor for a subject that is not listed, please fill out a tutor request form at the Academic Success Center desk in the Learning Commons and we will look for a tutor. Tutors are not available for all subjects and courses offered at MCC.
What do tutors do?
Tutors can answer questions, review course material, help you organize your writing and look over papers and assignments.
Some reasons to meet with a tutor:
- You are having trouble understanding course material,
- You get behind in your class,
- You receive low test scores, or
- You need help with math calculations.
