THE TUTORING CENTER
It has been two weeks since I started to work as a math tutor on campus. For students who might not know, the Tutoring Center is a place where students can get free tutoring for a variety of subjects, ranging from statistics to chemistry. I have been teaching basic math to precalculus.
"Welcome!" A coordinator of Tutoring Center, Ms. Pamela Gerstheimer
(a.k.a. Pam) always welcomes students with a warm smile.
My job at the Tutoring Center has been pleasing. Students are always vivacious and assiduous. I have always been inspired by energy and motivation each student has.
"How can I help you?" Picture of me as a math tutor
However, here is my concern. I have realized that so many people do not know the presence of the Tutoring Center. I strongly feel that students are "wasting school resources" especially for those who are taking courses that they are not confident with.
The greatest advantage of the Tutoring Center is, it is free; all you need is your ID card and you can get an individual tutoring session. All the tutors are helpful and have done well in whatever courses they are teaching so if you have trouble understanding the concepts of some subjects, the Tutoring Center is the best place to go.

Sometimes, Tutoring Center holds tutoring sessions for specific subjects, such as statistics and accounting. Not only do they have these special sessions (check emails frequently, information about these sessions have constantly been sent to all the students!), but some of the tutors are actually "professional tutors," including faculty at RCC and professionals who come from other institutions.
Although walk-in is available, I would encourage you to make an appointment with a tutor. (Especially when you find your favorite tutor!) We always welcome your visit! The Tutoring Center is located on the third floor of the Technology Building.
