- You may schedule two appointments (30 minutes) per subject each week.

- Students are required to call if they cannot make a scheduled appointment. Failure to cancel appointments will result in being denied scheduled appointments for the rest of the semester.
- Services are for SCTC students only.
- Sign in at our tracking station every time you visit the center, even if it is just to make an appointment or ask a quick question.
- Come with material to work on in your session, including copies of assignment guidelines and relevant course textbooks.
- Friends and family members may not participate in individual tutoring sessions, but any student is welcome in the center as long as he/she is not causing a disturbance to those who are working.
- Plan to arrive early for scheduled appointments so you can get yourself organized and be prepared to begin on time.
The Study Lounge
The tutoring and mentoring center offers open study sessions in Math and English, as well as PSB and TEAS test prep assistance, on a weekly basis. No appointment is needed to attend open study sessions. Students must bring material they wish to review with them to these sessions (sample problems, assignments in progress, graded assessments with errors identified, study guides, etc.) A tutor or peer mentor will serve multiple students during these times. Please see below for upcoming open study session dates and times.

Did you know that Tutoring and Mentoring makes house calls? That's right. We will send a TaM representative right to your door (your classroom door, that is). Please consider inviting us to speak to your students...
- at the beginning of the term
- after the first test
- before midterm
- just after the withdrawal deadline
- anytime you feel they might benefit from a reminder that academic support services are available!
Our visits can range from a 5-minute overview of our services to a full 60-minute workshop on topics such as study skills, note-taking, memorization techniques, and overcoming test anxiety.
Simply click on the button below to fill out a request form with the details of what you need, and we will get back with you within a day or two to confirm.
