Help from Tutors
Join PCC Tutoring Services remotely in their Zoom-based Tutoring Center. Students are able to interact with tutors via a microphone, webcam, and text-based chat box. Tutors use an interactive whiteboard to diagram concepts, and students can share their screens to review documents and clarify course material together. Friendly front desk staff welcome students into the Zoom room based on the order of arrival.
