Tutoring Program

Tutoring Program

Tutoring at the HFC Learning Lab is a support program, designed to assist students in clarifying subject matter and developing skills to better learn, understand, and apply information learned in the classroom. Tutoring is offered on both a walk-in/drop-in and by-appointment basis. Students who have scheduled appointments take priority over walk-ins. (For more information, please review our F.A.Q.).

Tutoring may take the form of individual (one-on-one) sessions or in small groups. Tutors adhere to HFC's policies governing academic integrity (https://www.hfcc.edu/current-students/student-policies). The Learning Lab offers tutoring from faculty members, professionals, and peer tutors. All of our tutors are well-qualified to assist students in succeeding at HFC. To make the most of the tutoring session, please prepare specific questions for the tutor.

Tutoring is offered for various subjects at different times of the day, according to the availability of tutors. All tutoring takes place during the regular times that the Learning Lab is open. Please be aware that during times that HFC is closed, tutoring will also be unavailable, and tutoring will also be limited during the beginning of the semester and during final exam week. For the most current information, please consult the tutoring calendars, below.

Most tutoring takes place in the Learning Lab (Learning Success Services, Building A, Room A-200), but some tutoring is offered at other locations on campus, to take advantage of technology or resources specific to the course/discipline. Please consult the tutoring calendar for the location of your session.
