Help from Tutors

Summer Term Online Tutoring: Opens June 21

PCC tuition includes access to FREE TUTORING through Zoom and Google Meet platforms. Connect with experienced faculty, alumni, professional and student tutors from all campuses using our drop-in (no appointment necessary) tutoring and scheduled online appointments.

How it works: Interact with your tutor via a microphone, webcam, or a 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.

 

Visit PCC's Tutoring page for information on how to get free online tutoring.
