Welcome!

Take advantage of our free tutoring services, available to currently enrolled Jefferson students across Jefferson campuses. Work together with a tutor in a supportive environment to strengthen your understanding of course materials, research, study skills, navigating Blackboard and more.

We offer two kinds of online tutoring: live video tutoring and writing tutoring with written feedback. For more information, see the Online Tutoring Page.

Take a look at the schedule of all the courses that we tutor.

If you have questions about the tutoring process or tutoring policies after reading this page, please contact us at jf-tutoring@kctcs.edu.

We look forward to working with you!

How Does Tutoring Work?

Tutoring sessions are active and collaborative. You and the tutor will work together on the topic that you want to discuss. They work with you, rather than doing your work for you. Depending on the subject you would like to work on, you will be paired with one of our peer, librarian, part-time faculty or faculty tutors.

To get the most out of the session, be ready with all relevant materials (including your syllabus, assignment, readings and class notes). 

Tutoring sessions last up to 45 minutes.


For in-person and online live video tutoring: 

  • You can use tutoring up to:
  • 8 times per week
  • 3 times per day
  • 2 times for the same subject per day
  • You’ll wait at least 1 hour between visits for the same subject.
  • If you can’t come to your appointment, please cancel in advance.
  • If you miss 3 appointments in 1 semester without canceling, you won’t be able to make an appointment for the rest of that semester.

For online writing tutoring with written feedback:

  • You can submit up to 1 draft every 2 weeks.
  • We'll send you feedback within 3 business days after you submit your draft.
  • *We may need to adjust these policies as we transition solely to online tutoring. Thank you for your flexibility.

We are unable to offer tutoring for class tests, placement tests, personal writing projects or courses taught outside of KCTCS.
