Using TC3's Tutoring Services is EASY!

If you don't see what you're looking for, PLEASE ASK!

TC3's Tutoring Center is located on the 2nd floor of the Baker Commons.

Tutoring options include in person support (drop-in and by appointment), online support, and self help support.

Phone ahead to verify that your desired subject will be covered at the time you plan to be here as schedules change occasionally due to illness.

What Does it Cost?

Tutoring is free to current TC3 students on a drop-in, first-come, first-served basis. We do ask students to sign in (and out) so that we can keep data on our services and receive some state funding for the time they spend with us.

What Should I Do Before Asking For Tutorial Services?

  • Come On In: You are welcome to come into one of the tutoring areas to study or work on homework. Please bring your ID. Sign in when you arrive and out when you leave.
  • Come Prepared: Before asking for help, spend some time with your work so that you have a better sense of what you need help with.
  • Take an Active Role in Tutoring. Don’t expect to sit back and "leave the driving to us." You will learn more when you are an active participant so let us guide you and not drive you. Bring your assignment sheet also.
  • Be patient and respectful toward the tutors and other tutees. We will try to help everyone who comes in for help, but at times, you might have to wait a few minutes. Try to plan enough time in your schedule.
