Earlier this month, QCC’s Summer I session began. Classes are being offered remotely and to support students, the QCC Tutoring Center, which encompasses the General Academic Areas Tutoring Center, Math Center, and Writing Center will also be offering its services remotely. Students have access to one-on-one and group tutoring through Blackboard Collaborate and Zoom, as well as receiving support as needed via email.

The General Academic Areas Tutoring Center is a tutoring and student resource center that provides appointment-based tutoring sessions in a variety of academic subjects that are now being delivered on the Zoom platform.

Students have the option of individual one-on-one tutoring, small group tutoring, or they can choose both options. In individual tutoring students work one-on-one with a tutor to help clarify course content, work through problem areas, and enhance study skills. Group tutoring offers students the option to work with a tutor and up to three classmates. In a group tutoring session, students can learn different approaches to a particular problem, assignment, or course content from their classmates as well as the tutor.

For information on subjects, hours, and how to join a session, students should visit GAA website. For questions, email: gaa [at] qcc.mass.edu.

QCC’s Math Center’s remote tutoring provides math resources in an individual or group remote setting. The goal of tutoring is to help students strengthen math and study skills by reinforcing classroom and online learning. QCC math tutors can assist with exercise sets and examples from course textbooks, with similar questions from Pearson - MyLab Math, McGraw-Hill - Connect, and Cengage - WebAssign homework assignments. Tutors can also help students navigate the course website, textbooks and e-texts, videos, and Blackboard. The Math Center offers both individual and small-group tutoring sessions via Blackboard Collaborate.

Math tutoring sessions are held Monday – Thursday from 10:00 a.m.– 2:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m.– 7:00 p.m., and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. For information on hours and how to join a session, students should visit the Math Center website.
