We hope that everyone is safe and well during this time. The Tutoring Center is here to support you academically and we'll be assisting you virtually for the remainder of the Spring semester. Tutoring is available for you through Blackboard Collaborate and ThinkingStorm.

Blackboard Collaborate will allow you and an RCC tutor to engage with each other and feel like you're in the same room—with your favorite devices. Tutoring will continue to function through its unique platform of appointments and drop-ins. If you're interested in Drop-In Tutoring, click on one of the links below during the scheduled hours!
