Tutoring Services

Need Extra Help?  No Problem, Tutoring is Free!

Tutoring can be an integral part of college success and is offered free of charge for all Hill College students. Upon request, students are assigned a peer tutor for each area of study in which they may need assistance. Students are required to sign a Tutoring Contract to initiate the tutoring process. In order to best serve the student, the contract requires that the student comply with specific stipulations. For example, students requesting tutoring services are expected to attend classes regularly, complete all assignments, and attend each scheduled tutoring session. Failure to comply could result in the termination of tutoring services for the remainder of the semester.

Please be aware that the tutoring services are contingent upon the availability of tutors and tutoring funds.  When we are experiencing a shortage of tutors for a given subject, a tutoring match may not be made.  When tutoring funds are exhausted, tutoring matches may not be made.

Tutoring is available for the following courses:

Anatomy and Physiology
Computer Science
Developmental Math
Developmental Writing
English as a Second Language
Information Processing
Criminal Justice
Developmental Reading

Our TRiO Tutoring Program is internationally certified by the College Reading and Learning Association. We strive to meet the needs of all students.
