The CRC Tutoring Center provides mostly in-person support and online tutoring for students who need academic assistance outside the classroom. Tutoring is conducted by instructor-approved peer tutors. Tutoring services are free to any CRC enrolled student.
Great news! You can now schedule an appointment for tutoring support during business hours. Note that you can only make an appointment before 5:00 pm. Any time after 5:00 pm will be on a drop-in only basis.

"While I loved my undergraduate science and math classes, many were very challenging for me. I wanted to do well in my classes, so I frequently sought out tutoring. Having a person or a small group to talk through the concepts with was vital to my success as a biology major. I will always encourage students to seek out whatever support they need to be successful. Always be active and take charge of your education!"
