2018-2019 Catalog

Tutorial Services


Tutorial Services provides free tutoring for currently enrolled students for most BCC credit classes. Tutors meet with students one-to-one, in small groups and in drop-in help sessions. Most tutors are BCC students or peer tutors, who are recommended by faculty of an individual course or field of study. Many are also community tutors with expertise in a variety of areas. Students may request a tutor at the Tutoring Center (K-214) or the South County Center in Great Barrington. Drop-in help is also available for math. Drop-in schedules are found in the Tutoring Center — 413-236-1650 or 413-236-1651.

Student Success Skills

Tutorial Services provides Student Success Skills Workshops throughout the academic year on helpful topics such as: Getting and Staying Organized, Effective Listening and Note-taking, Textbook Reading, Your Preferred Learning Style, Test-Taking Strategies, and Critical Thinking. Other topics are also avail- able. Success Skills pamphlets and study tips can be found in the Tutoring Center (K-214). Contact the Coordinator at 413-236-1651 to schedule a workshop.

Online Tutoring

BCC students also have access to free online tutoring through Smarthinking®. The log-in link with instructions can be found on every Moodle page in the left hand column and in “My Bookmarks” on the student MyBCC page. Tutors are available for math, writing, natural and physical sciences, business, and computers. You may “drop-in” for one-on-one immediate help, schedule a tutoring appointment, and submit your writing for review and get a response in your BCC email.
