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, adjunct faculty or faculty tutors.

Tutoring Policies:

  • Tutoring sessions last up to 45 minutes.
  • 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 50 minutes 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 without speaking with the director of tutoring services.
  • Due to safety concerns, we will not hold a tutoring session with anyone driving a vehicle at the time of the session.
  • We love working with you during official tutoring hours! We cannot tutor outside of that time.

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

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

Accessibility Statement

If you have any accessibility needs, please let us know. We are happy to work with you!

Our goal is to make all of our materials and services accessible. Please inform staff of accessibility barriers you encounter, and request accommodations that will make activities and information resources accessible to you. You can contact us at, talk to your tutor during a session, and/or tell us about your needs in the notes section when making an appointment in TutorTrac.

If you are deaf or hard-of-hearing, we can work with you in Teams so that we can use automated closed-captioning. We also welcome working with an interpreter, which you can schedule by contacting the Access*Ability Resource Center at

To learn more about the services offered by the Access*Ability Resource Center and whether you are eligible, please go to the ARC page.
