Tutoring Services

Promoting Academic Student Success (PASS) offers free tutoring services to students who need assistance beyond the classroom. Our tutors help students develop a deeper understanding of class material and gain successful skills that can improve their overall GPA. They assess student academic strengths and challenges, and develop strategies for time management, test-taking, textbook reading, memorization and notetaking.

  • Students are strongly encouraged to be enrolled in PASS or be active in other participating programs to receive tutoring services
  • Tutoring appointments will be arranged for one (1) hour per week of tutoring at no charge
  • Individual or small group session tutoring is available by appointment
  • Late cancellations or no shows can result suspension in receiving tutoring services within PASS
