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.
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.

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.
