Tutoring and Academic Help

students studying
 

FREE one-on-one and group tutoring is offered to students across academic disciplines in more than 300 MCC courses. The purpose of tutoring is to help students help themselves, and to assist or guide them to the point at which they become independent learners, and thus no longer need a tutor.
