Pass the Torch offers one-on-on peer tutoring in English, ESLL and Mathematics. Students must be enrolled in these courses and complete an application to participate in the program.
For hours when the STEM Center, Teaching & Learning Center, and Pass the Torch are closed, you can get additional online tutoring support from NetTutor, a 24/7 online tutoring service.
Visit the Student Support Portal Tutoring page to learn about all of the services and how you can access them.
The Online Education Initiative and NetTutor provide 24/7 online tutoring services for students in fully online courses that use Canvas. Online tutoring enables students to get help with coursework even when they can't get to campus, and beyond the hours of operation of most tutoring centers. Tutors do not give out answers and do not fix papers, instead they help students to better understand the material.
