Free tutoring is available in the Academic Resource Center (ARC) at Chester and Midlothian. All tutoring is available on a walk-in basis. No appointment is necessary.
The ARC staff is ready to help you with:
- test-taking skills
- study skills and more!
Students can also use computers in the ARC to do Internet research, access tutorial software, or work on writing assignments.
The ARC is Hiring Tutors:
Looking for a job on campus? Apply to be a tutor in the ARC! We will specifically interview for writing or math/science tutors, both for the normal ARC staff and for the Supplemental Instruction (SI) Tutor positions. If you enjoy helping people and wish to gain experience working in an academic environment, please consider applying.
Students who want information about applying should email the ARC (firstname.lastname@example.org).
One on One Tutoring:
While the ARC is always open to tutor students on a walk-in basis, we also provide limited one on one tutoring sessions on Fridays and Saturdays of each week. One on one sessions will last 45 minutes. Students can set up an appointment on the One on One Tutoring Request form for their course and preferred time slot(s). Booking an appointment will depend upon availability and demand. Each week we will let students know via email what available times we have for their one on one session, which will be scheduled for the subsequent week. Students can request up to 4 appointments per class per semester.
If you have any questions, please fill out the contact form below with your name, student email, and query.
Online tutoring is available through Brainfuse, which you can access by logging into your MyTyler and selecting the Brainfuse app. Brainfuse offers live one-on-one online tutoring, as well as an online Writing Lab, the ability to create your own flashcards, from online study groups and much more.
For writing, students unable to come into the Writing Center and work in person may submit writing assignments electronically during business hours by filling out the following form: Writing Center Online Submission Form. All writing submissions to the ARC will maintain a 36 business hour turnaround time: if you submit a paper on Monday at 9:00 a.m., the latest you would get it back would be Friday at 9:00 a.m. Saturdays are not considered business hours, so we will not begin working on/send back submissions on Saturdays.
The Writing Center helps students become stronger, more independent writers. Students can work with our tutors face-to-face in the ARC or online. We welcome assignments at any stage of the writing process, for any kind of writing project.

The tutors in the Math Center are available to help students in all levels of math, science, engineering, accounting, and most other STEM-H classes. We offer a quiet space to independently work on homework, receive individual help on assignments or preparing for a test, and/or have group study sessions. The tutors can also assist with standardized test preparation, including the VPT, TEAS, Praxis, and ASVAB.
