FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
Who are the tutors? Our tutors are current college students. We have undergraduate and graduate level students from different colleges, such as Pierce and CSUN. We have a variety of paid and volunteer tutors. Our volunteer tutors are willing to dedicate their own time to help students succeed in any subject or area they need help. Additionally, many Pierce instructors do their office hours at the CAS which allows them to meet with students on a walk-in basis.
How do I meet with a tutor? Depending on the subject, there are two ways to see a tutor: by appointment or walk-in. Call the Center for Academic Success to find out if the subject you want tutoring in is appointment or walk-in based.
What should I bring to a tutoring session? You should bring what you would bring to class such as course syllabus, class notes, textbook, calculator, pencils, pens, etc.
Do I need to be a Pierce student to meet with a tutor? You can meet with a tutor for ANY subject, as long as you are taking at least 1 Pierce College class. The class you are in does not have to be the subject in which you need help.
How often can I meet with a tutor? For general tutoring, you can have one 30-minute appointment per day. For math tutoring, the tutors walk around so when a math tutor is available, you may ask them questions.
How much does tutoring cost? Tutoring is absolutely FREE of charge.
