Everyone needs a little help from time to time. Tutorial Services provides a supportive learning environment to all students seeking academic support. We strive to help our students better prepare for classes and develop the skills necessary for a successful college career.
Why should you come for tutoring?
- You can increase your independence as a learner
- You can use your limited study time more effectively
- Individual and group sessions are offered
- Tutoring is free to RCCD students
- You can receive up to three hours per week/per subject
- Our tutors not only deliver content information, they motivate, coach, challenge and provide feedback to you.
Tutoring sessions are led by qualified tutors who received an “A” or “B” in the respective courses for which they choose to tutor. They reinforce specific course material emphasized by the professors and use their own successful student experiences to integrate what-to- learn with how-to-learn. All of our tutors come highly recommended by the College’s faculty members.
Subject areas offered for tutoring change each semester, but may include math, chemistry, history, psychology, physics, biology, anatomy and physiology, sociology, business administration, computer information, Spanish, French, and many more.
