Subject Tutoring

Peer Tutoring


Support is available in all areas of instruction, as well as in writing, speaking, study skills, and instructional technology. Support for students with disabilities is also provided at the HAC. Tutoring and mentoring services are offered to promote academic excellence and to provide individualized academic support to all students. 


Our tutors are trained, faculty-recommended tutors, who offer assistance in most subject areas, and are available during specified drop-in hours or by appointment.  Students can find updated schedules on the HAC web page and in the HAC welcome area.

All tutors receive training in current tutoring strategies, metacognition, and learning styles. Tutors achieve international certification from the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) by completing their training.
