Free Tutoring Available!

We want you to succeed. Our tutors are here to help you do just that. Tutoring staff are highly qualified in a range of subjects and are available both in-person and online during all hours the center is open. From math to writing and everything in between, we're your 'one-stop-shop' for studying, writing assistance, group project collaboration, help with homework and more. Even better? NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY!

It's very simple to connect with a tutor. You have options:

  1. In-Person: Visit us on the Coos Campus in the Laker Learning Commons on the 3rd Floor of Tioga Hall. In-person tutoring can be arranged for Curry Campus students; simply email us and let us know what you need help with!
  2. Drop-In Zoom: First, login to myLakerLink and then click  on the "Student Success Services" tab up top. Click the button that says "Drop-In Zoom" and you'll get connected with a tutor!

    Free Faculty Writing Coaches

    Have a writing assignment due? Need a second set of eyes? Faculty writing coaches are available to help you with all your writing needs through our Writing Center. Writing coaches will help you at every stage of the writing process, from helping come up with a thesis for your paper to reviewing your final draft to make sure it is ready to submit. We can even help review scholarship applications and essays!

    Just like tutoring, writing coaches are available both in-person and via Zoom. You can also submit your paper and a description of what you need help with via email and a writing coach will review your paper and respond within 24 hours.
