Tutoring Center FAQs
- Is there any charge for tutoring?
No. Tutoring assistance is available free of charge to all Tri-County Technical College students.
- Do I need an appointment to get tutoring help?
Yes and no. Appointments take precedence over walk-ins, but we welcome all students to the Tutoring Center. If a tutor is not available to help you when you come as a walk-in, we will help you make an appointment. It is to your advantage to schedule an appointment in advance either through Starfish or by calling 864-646-1367. Tutoring sessions fill up quickly when essays/research papers are due, when lab reports are due, and at test times. However, if you are coming for a Supplemental Instruction session, you need no appointment.
- Do you offer individual tutoring?
Yes. The majority of our appointments are one-on-one sessions with a professional tutor.
- Do you offer group tutoring?
Yes, groups of two or more students may make appointments for group tutoring sessions. Group tutoring is great for test, midterm, or exam review.
- How long do tutoring sessions last?
Each tutoring session lasts 30 minutes and consecutive sessions are not permitted except with special permission of the Coordinator of Tutoring. However, when tutors have open sessions, they will usually continue working with you.
- How do I make an appointment?
First, you may make an appointment through Starfish for tutoring at any campus. Instructions can be found on the Tutoring Center website on eTC under the Learn tab. Second, you can call 864-646-1367 and ask for help making an appointment. This choice is especially helpful if you are at the Anderson or Easley campuses and need help making an appointment for tutoring. Third, you can come to the Tutoring Center in SC 109 on the Pendleton Campus and ask someone to help you make an appointment. Fourth, you can email for an appointment at email@example.com.
