The Tutoring Centers

Where students become scholars

What are the tutoring centers?

The Tutoring Centers are places on both campuses where NSCC students can go to improve their course work and study skills with the support of highly skilled peer and professional tutors. Currently enrolled students can visit our free, walk-in centers where individual tutoring is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Who should use the centers?

Whether you are one of the strongest students in class or find yourself challenged with certain subjects, you will benefit from the services the Tutoring Center provides.

  • Stuck on a math problem? We can help!
  • Need help getting started on a paper? Yes, we do that too!
  • Want to brush up on your study or computer skills? This is the place to be!
  • Referred by an instructor for help with specific skills? Check!
  • Need someone to do your work for you? Gotcha! Sorry ...that's not what we do here!

What should I bring?

To help our tutors provide you with the highest level of assistance and to make the most use of your time with a tutor, you should bring assignments, syllabi, old tests/quizzes, notebooks and texts. You should also come with a particular problem, task, or goal for each session.

Hours of Operation

Fall 2016: September 12, 2016 through December 16, 2016

The Fall tutor/subject schedule is subject to change based on tutor availability. We provide assistance in most subjects. If you do not see a subject listed, please ask us and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
