What to Expect / Tutoring Policies

Who can access Tutoring and Learning Resources?

Tutoring is FREE and available for all currently enrolled ACC students, including students taking concurrent enrollment courses.

How do I schedule an appointment? 

Appointments only need to be scheduled for the Writing Lab or for virtual tutoring appointments. These must be made 24 hours in advance. To create a writing center appointment, visit WCOnline. To create a virtual appointment for other subject areas, it’s just like making an Academic Advising appointment! Visit Navigate360 → Appointments, click Schedule An Appointment, use the drop-down menu to select Tutoring & Learning Resources, then “Tutoring for my course.” Once you click “Find Available Time,” you can find a tutor for the class(es) you are looking for. If you need help scheduling an appointment, please reference our instructions or give us a call!

How long are tutoring appointments? 

Students are allotted 2 30-minute appointments and 1 60-minute virtual tutoring appointment per day. The length of the appointment depends on which class(es) you are taking. For example, calculus, computer science, organic chemistry, and physics tutoring appointments are 60 minutes long. Please schedule your online and Writing Lab appointments with greater than 24 hours’ notice to allow our tutors adequate time to prepare.

What happens if I am late or miss a virtual appointment or writing center appointment?

Tutors will wait 15 minutes for students who may be running late to a tutoring appointment. Beyond 15 minutes, you will be marked as a no-show to your appointment. Students are allowed 3 no-shows before access to WCOnline and / or Navigate360 is restricted. If you find that you are unable to make an appointment in either platform, please contact Tutoring and Learning Resources for assistance.

What happens if I need to cancel my appointment?

If you need to cancel your tutoring appointment, you can either cancel it yourself in WCOnline or Navigate360, or contact our office for assistance. If you cancel a tutoring appointment with less than 24 hours’ notice, it will be counted as a no-show.

What if none of the ACC virtual or drop-in times work for my schedule?

Our ACC tutors are the best resource for help since they are familiar with course content, faculty, and specific knowledge about our campus. However, if you need tutoring outside of the hours that ACC offers tutoring, TutorMe allows currently registered ACC students to meet with a qualified tutor online. You can find the TutorMe link in D2L, under the Resources tab. Students are limited to 5 hours of TutorMe services per week.

What can I work on with my tutor?

Please come to tutoring with class notes or other resources you would like to work on further. Many students like to come to tutoring for help with confusing class content, assistance with homework, guidance on projects or papers, or even just a place to study. Tutoring is not a substitute for attending class or completing online coursework on your own! Tutors are not permitted to solve homework problems for students or help students with quizzes / exams.
