What does it cost?

Tutoring is free to current Tompkins Cortland Community College 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 to receive some state funding.

What do I need to do?

  • 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. Bring a copy of your assignment with you.
  • Take an active role. 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.
  • Be patient and respectful toward the tutors and students. We will try to help everyone as efficiently as possible, but at times, you might have to wait a few minutes. Try to plan enough time in your schedule.
