Who is eligible for tutoring?
Any student enrolled at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College may receive free tutoring assistance.
Who are the tutors?
Tutors are students from Cincinnati State Technical and Community College who have received an “A” or “B” in their coursework. Tutors are interviewed, trained, and hired upon the recommendation of Cincinnati State faculty members. Students who meet these requirements and who are interested in becoming a tutor are asked to complete an application. Applications are available in Room 261 Main Building.
How can I register for a tutor?
Sign into Blackboard, and click on the Starfish tab. Next, go to My Success Network, and click on Schedule Appointment. All tutoring appointments must be scheduled 24 hours in advance, and are weekly appointments.
In what subjects is tutoring offered?
Tutoring is provided for those courses located under the Starfish link.
What kind of help do tutors give?
We hire qualified student and adjunct tutors who are knowledgeable and dependable. They are committed to helping students achieve academic success. They will answer questions and explain concepts, but will not do the tutored student’s homework. The student must attend class regularly, read the textbook, be prepared for tutoring sessions, have relevant questions, and complete all homework assignments. These efforts will facilitate academic success.
How often can I see my tutor?
Student-to-student tutoring requires that you schedule a recurring appointment, and occurs weekly, up to two courses. Walk-In tutoring does not require any scheduled appointments. Feel free to pick a schedule in the Success Center.
How many weeks is tutoring offered per semester?
Tutoring runs from week 2 – week 14 of each semester.
What if I cannot make a tutoring session?
You must notify the Success Center at (513) 569-1614 at least 24-48 hours before the scheduled session. This must be done in order to avoid losing your services for the semester.
This service is provided as a supplement to the existing on-campus academic assistance (tutoring) options for students. Students can receive help in Math (from remedial level through Calculus II), Accounting, Biology, Chemistry, Statistics, etc. For more information, visit www.etutoring.org.
