What to Expect from Tutoring

Our professional tutors are here to provide a complimentary service to EFSC students who need additional help with understanding core concepts and how to improve their study skills. If you have questions regarding formulas, concepts, processes, formatting a paper, structuring a paper or improving your writing, our tutors can help.

Tutors will not explain your class assignments, assist you with a quiz or test or edit your paper. Please see instructors during their office hours or your class for clarification about assignments. Please note that all tutoring times are subject to change.
