Tutoring Services

tutor services schedule changes for spring 2020

Tutoring Centers provide free tutoring service if you are registered in credit courses at Rogue Community College. The primary areas of tutoring are math, writing and science; however, tutors are prepared to cover most subjects.

RCC provides Professional and Peer Tutors certified through the College Reading and Learning Association.

Math Tutorial Information

The Tutoring Centers offer math assistance for all math courses taught at RCC. In general, the tutors will review and explain mathematical concepts. To assist the tutors to better serve you, please do the following when visiting the centers:

  • Come to the center having completed the required reading. Check with your instructor if you have any questions about your assignment.
  • Come with questions regarding specific problem areas. You should know what you want the tutor to look over.
  • Be sure to have the original problem in the text available to show the tutor. Sometimes problems are a result of simple copying errors.
  • Don't wait until the last minute to see us.
  • Give your math assignment and your visit to the center your best efforts.

Our staff cannot offer:

  • Assistance with class assignments, lab assignments or extra credit assignments. These are generally even numbered problems, though tutors will assist with similar problems to be used as a guide.
  • A lengthy instructional service - rely on your instructor.
  • A proofing or correcting service.

Writing Tutorial Information

Tutors are eager to assist you in your efforts to improve your writing skills; however, the amount of time a tutor can spend on a writing assignment will vary depending upon how busy the center is at that particular visit. In general, tutors will not be able to read entire papers longer than 3 pages so have specific problem areas identified.

We offer friendly, competent assistance to help you improve your work. But writing improvement takes time. Therefore, to help us help you...

  • Come to the center with as much information about your assignment as you can. Check with your instructor if you have any questions about it.
  • Don't wait until the last minute to see us.
  • Bring returned, graded essays if you like.
  • Bring your papers in a fairly finished form for ease of reading by a tutor. (In other words, you've made some corrections from the original rough draft.)
  • Come with questions regarding specific problem areas, mechanics, development of ideas, continuity, etc. in the assignment. You should know what you want the tutor to look over. The tutor will not point out each error but alert you to check that type of error.

Our staff cannot offer...

  • A proofreading, rewriting, correcting service.
  • A "we write it for you" arrangement.
  • A 20 minute miracle cure (but we can come close).
  • A guarantee that your paper is perfect when you leave.
