Each college provides multiple opportunities for students to receive help with their academic work. The best place to start is by visiting your college’s Tutoring Center, where peer and professional tutors are available to offer assistance in a wide range of subjects. Additionally, individual departments may host tutoring activities in their subject areas at the department level. Finally, City Colleges are working with embedded tutors to provide additional support inside the classroom.
Students can request the assistance of a tutor at any campus with a valid CCC Student ID.

TUTORING SERVICE GUIDELINES
- What Tutors and Students can accomplish together.
We are happy to assist you with study prep, note taking, brainstorming and final revisions. Tutoring sessions are limited to one hour. It is important to remember that tutoring services can also be utilized early in the semester as well.
- Come prepared to tutoring sessions.
Bring any relevant textbooks, syllabi, class materials, notes, and papers. It is easier for the tutors to provide excellent tutoring service if students bring the appropriate materials to a tutoring session. Additionally, it is important for your tutor to refer back to any relevant materials provided by your instructor.
- Read your textbook and any relevant material provided by your instructor.
In order to understand the course material it is essential to read assigned pages from the textbook. Additionally, the tutors can provide students with greater assistance when the student have read the appropriate material(s).
- Come with a plan and questions.
Know what material you would like to cover within a tutoring session. Actively participate in the tutoring session by having a list of questions to ask your assigned tutor.
- Tutors can only help with homework concepts and assignments.
We strongly encourage students to make an attempt at completing their assignment prior to requesting a tutor so students can take note of the specific concepts with which they want help. You and your tutor can review these concepts and work through similar problems. However, the tutor cannot do your homework for you nor help you with take home tests, quizzes, or projects.
- Please be respectful, thank you!
Your time with the tutor is valuable. Please do not talk on your cell phone or cause distractions while working with your assigned tutor.
