Tutoring Information

AAC Tutoring

The Academic Assistance Center Tutors are Peer and Community Tutors. Peer Tutors are CCCC students who have excelled in the classes they tutor and have been highly recommended by faculty. Community Tutors are not current CCCC students but they have demonstrated mastery of the areas they are tutoring. The AAC Tutors have the advantage of being familiar with CCCC faculty, their courses, assignments, and expectations of students.

To request an AAC Tutor, please submit a Tutor Request.
