Free tutorial assistance is available to any RCC student who is having academic difficulty. Tutoring is provided through one-on-one tutoring, or by small group sessions. Reinforcement and skill drill is also available in the form of computer, written, and video tutorials.
Faculty members are encouraged to send students to the Academic Success Center for skills labs or remedial work. Faculty are asked to complete referral cards for students to be tutored, and to identify specific academic weaknesses, and to make suggestions for tutorial materials and/or tutoring techniques. Students will be assigned a tutor only when a referral card has been received by a Academic Success Coordinator.
Faculty are also encouraged to recommend students who would make qualified tutors for their subject area. Although student tutors are used when possible, professional tutors may be employed if no other qualified assistance is available.
