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.

ARC staff are ready to help you with:

  • writing
  • math
  • science
  • engineering
  • business
  • foreign languages
  • 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.

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.

Online Tutoring:

Online tutoring is available for STEM-H courses through NetTutor, which you can access through your course(s) on Blackboard. NetTutor offers both live one-on-one online tutoring, as well as asynchronous or Q and A tutoring, where students can leave a question and receive feedback within 24 hours. 

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 9am, the latest you would get it back would be Friday at 9am. Saturdays are not considered business hours, so we will not begin working on/send back submissions on Saturdays.

The Writing Center:

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. For additional information about the Writing Center or the resources we offer, please click the following link:

The Math Center: 

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, and ASVAB. 

Beyond hiring tutors for work in the ARC, we are also looking for specific tutors for a new program we are launching in the spring called Supplemental Instruction (SI). These tutors will be embedded into sections of Chemistry 111, Precalculus (MTH 161), and Developmental English. Beyond being embedded in the classroom, tutors will also hold weekly study sessions for the students in those classes to help review material. Each week the SI tutors will work one on one with faculty to prepare and discuss the week’s lessons. Just like the student tutor positions, hours are limited to 20 per week. SI tutors will be asked to work around 15-16 hours a week, with the balance of time in the ARC as a tutor not spent in the classroom or holding outside SI sessions. The deadline for applications is Friday, November 23.    

Here are applications by course:

Chemistry 111

Precalculus MTH 161

Developmental English 

*All applicants will also be considered for tutoring positions in the ARC if not selected for SI program.* 

If you're interested in working as just a student tutor in the ARC please fill out our online application.
