NEMCC students are afforded additional classroom assistance in the form of tutoring services. Students who are in our Career Technical Education programs are able to access high quality, professionally led tutoring offered in our Math and English labs located in Dean Hall.
Individual Peer Tutoring
Individual peer tutoring is available free to all NEMCC students. In order for students to receive peer tutoring, they need to be faculty-referred to the Counseling Center specifically for tutoring in the identified subjects/courses.* Faculty may submit the Referral for Peer Tutoring form directly to the Counseling Center or fill out for the student to submit. This process ensures that students have met with their instructors about the difficulty they are experiencing. This allows the instructors to advise students of all the resources available and of the students’ standing in their courses. The instructors are also able to direct students to resources they consider most promising for the students. Students can submit their Request for Tutoring packet application in person or electronically to the Counseling Center. Although every effort is made, a guarantee that a tutor will be available in each subject/course cannot be made.
*Please remember, for CTE students, the professionally staffed Math Lab and English Lab in Dean Hall are to be recommended prior to peer tutoring for English composition and math courses. The Writing Center in Cartwright Hall is available to all to assist with writing.
NetTutor is a free-to-students, online tutoring service and can be accessed 24/7 through the student’s Canvas account. If assistance is needed on how to access this service, students are encouraged to consult with their instructors or speak with the Counseling Center.
Become a Tutor
Likewise, students interested in being a tutor can apply in person at the Counseling Center by completing the Request to Tutor packet. To tutor, typically students must earn an “A” and/or receive recommendation from their instructors. Student tutors are paid by the hour for their services.
This three-pronged approach – (1) Math & English Labs, (2) 24/7 Online Tutoring, and (3) Individual Peer Tutoring – works to provide NEMCC students with the additional assistance to be very successful!
