Academic Achievement Center - Individual Tutoring


As a JCCC student, you can receive weekly individualized tutoring assistance all semester in any or all of your courses free of charge through the Academic Achievement Center (AAC). You can have access for up to 90 minutes a week per course with an individual tutor for the semester.

Through individual, semester-long tutoring sessions each week, you will be taught to:

  • study
  • comprehend material
  • practice and master course material

Although the College works to meet every tutoring request, the ability to meet the request depends on:

  • tutor availability
  • tutor skill level
  • appropriate student response and communication
  • whether a tutor is assigned to a certain course

Individual tutoring is designed to support you weekly during the semester. For drop-in tutoring assistance for a specific need, please visit other resource centers on campus.

Note: If you request a tutor but do not fulfill your obligations, you may become ineligible to receive further tutoring.

For more information about individual tutoring services, please email the Individual Tutor Coordinator.

  • To receive individual tutoring assistance, please fill out the tutor request form. The sooner you submit, the more likely you are to get a priority time slot.
  • Tutoring requests are filled on a first-come, first-served basis in accordance with an individual tutor’s availability and skill level. Tutoring requested later in the semester will be more difficult to fill.
  • If tutoring assistance cannot be provided due to a lack of proficient or available tutors, you will be contacted by the Individual Tutor Coordinator and provided with alternative resources.
