Students receiving tutoring at CRC

The CRC Tutoring Center provides 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.

What is Penji?

At CRC, we understand how important tutors and mentors are to a student’s educational development and that is why we are offering Penji. It is a space for students to access tutoring services, submit paper reviews and so much more. Penji can be accessed through the web or mobile and is remote-friendly. Students who are enrolled at Cosumnes River College can sign up for tutoring services through Penji. Online tutoring support for the Math Center, Reading Writing Center, Accounting Lab, Tutoring Center, and ESL Lab can be found through Penji.
