Tutoring & Development

The Academic Success Center offers a variety of tutoring options for students. The Math and Writing Lab offers drop in services, including proof reading papers. You can just drop-in when you're on campus and get some help. No need to make appointments weeks in advance! Tutoring for most courses is offered by appointment. In order to receive help, you'll need to complete a Tutor Request Form or call the Academic Success Center at (603) 206-8140. We will try to have a tutor contact you within 24 hours.

Tutoring is intended for all students who want to improve their academic performance. Peer tutoring is free for MCC students in credit-bearing courses and is located in the Academic Success Center.

Tutoring is offered on a drop-in basis daily from 9am to 8pm Monday through Thursday and until 6 pm on Fridays, and Saturdays 9am to 2pm. Schedules for tutoring are posted each semester in the Academic Success Center.

Tutoring

Each student is eligible for up to 2 hours of free tutoring per week, per course, per semester. Once they fill out a tutor request form, they are required to sign a contract of obligation (see back of tutor request form).

Online tutoring is available for online classes through Blackboard.

All tutoring must be done on campus to protect both tutor and tutee. Remember, tutoring is a service, not a right. There are tutors capable of assisting you with most subjects.

  • Peer tutoring is an effective method of helping students be successful because peer tutors have taken and passed the course with a 'B' or better.
  • Professional tutors are also available for Reading and Writing during certain days.
  • Professors spend some or all of their posted office hours in the Academic Success Center to provide access to professional walk-in tutoring.

Study Groups and Group Tutoring

Students are encouraged to join or start study groups with classmates. This is often successful in improving students' confidence and skill in a particular class. Tutors can be requested to lead study groups.

Want to be a Tutor?

Tutors often report that they have been more successful in their own coursework when they help other students, because it helps them keep the material fresh in their minds.

In order to qualify as a tutor, you must be a student at Manchester Community College and have received a B or above in the course you wish to tutor. MCC's peer tutoring program is CRLA-certified, which means that all tutors must successfully complete the certification process.
