Tutoring Services

Free tutoring services are offered through the LLS (Library and Learning Services) departments at Allegheny, Boyce, North and South campuses. These services are for CCAC students taking credit courses. Both in-house (face-to-face) and online tutoring services are available regardless of where in the system students take their courses. To get further information on individual campus in-house tutoring services, please call the campus numbers listed below.

Online Tutoring

Ten hours of free online tutoring per semester is offered to all CCAC students and will be particularly useful for students who are not able to use the in-house facilities. Through our partnership with SMARTHINKING, CCAC is able to offer live tutoring anytime, from anywhere. Students will receive real-time assistance in math, chemistry, bilingual math, physics, organic chemistry, biology, intro to anatomy and physiology, economics, introductory finance, accounting and statistics. Writing support for all subjects is also provided through the online writing lab.
