Tutoring services are offered at no charge to all current PTCC students. Tutors will assist when needed and help students gain the study skills required to be successful in class. All tutoring is provided by peer tutors. Peer Tutors are students who have taken the courses, received high grades, and been recommended by instructors.
To get the most out of your tutoring session come prepared. Peer Tutors are not substitutes for your instructors, so they will not re-lecture your course material, they will assist you with learning the material in a different format. Tutors can help with brainstorming ideas, researching topics, thesis statements, outlines, topic sentences, and grammar for your research paper. Tutors will not do your work for you.
There are many different resources for students online. Here are a few different ones ranging from math, science to English.
