Tutoring Services

The primary goal of Tutoring Services is to help UACCM students learn critical skills that can help them achieve success in the classroom. Tutoring Services is designed to provide assistance to students in various courses based on need and demand. Tutoring Services is funded by UACCM and free to all currently enrolled UACCM students. 

Tutoring is not meant to replace classroom instruction. Instead, tutoring is intended to help UACCM students succeed in the classroom by learning critical skills. This may include providing assistance to a student that is beyond the scope of the course. Tutors operate on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tutoring Services strives to maintain a welcoming, confidential environment that is conducive to learning.

On campus tutor availability is announced as early as possible. To review current on campus tutor availability, visit Tutoring Services.
