Through a supportive and interactive learning experience, Johnson College offers peer and professional tutoring to encourage our students in becoming independent learners who can to achieve their personal goals.
Tutoring is offered free of charge for currently registered students.
How do I know if I need a tutor?
The time to seek assistance from a tutor is the minute you realize you need help. If you’re still not sure, ask yourself these questions:
- Am I falling behind in class?
- Am I having trouble with homework assignments?
- Have I done poorly on tests I have taken?
- Do I have difficulty writing a paper?
If you answered “Yes” to even one question above, you should make a tutoring appointment soon.
- Only Johnson College students may receive tutoring services.
- You can come back as many times as needed.
- No, we can’t help with tests. That’s considered cheating.
What will tutoring do for me?
- The goal of the tutoring program is to provide the resources to help strengthen your knowledge and understanding of the material in your college classes. It also promotes the processes of active learning, independence, and motivation.
- Free tutoring is provided to currently enrolled students for selected content areas. Tutoring schedules will be available each semester.
- The tutoring staff includes professional and peer tutors. Peer tutors are fellow students who must meet certain qualifications and participate in an extensive training program. Tutors will work with you to help you understand the subject. They will serve as a guide, but they will not do your work for you.
