Drop-In Tutoring

Drop-in Tutoring

STEM Center use is available by reservation. Space can be reserved ahead of time online or in-person at time of arrival.

Check out our tutoring schedule to see when drop-in tutoring is available for specific courses. This schedule will be updated throughout the quarter.

Drop-in tutoring is a tutoring service where you can drop in and receive help in math, science, and engineering courses. No appointment is necessary! Support for most subjects is typically available throughout the week. However, because the majority of our tutors are BBCC students, tutors are not available for all subjects all day. The drop-in tutoring schedule outlines when specific subjects are offered. 

Who is a STEM Center Tutor?

The majority of BBCC tutors are BBCC students themselves. However, we do hire part-time tutors as well. Both positions have different hiring processes, but both processes strive to hire tutors who know the content and who are committed to students’ academic success. 

What does a STEM Center tutor do exactly?

A STEM Tutor’s goal is to help BBCC students become independent learners. This means will guide a student through difficult content or help a student study for a test, but they will not do coursework for a student. 

When I’m at the STEM Center, how do I request a tutor’s help?

While in the STEM Center you can request help from a tutor by:

  • You can directly approach a tutor and let them know you need help. A tutor will either help them or direct them to someone that can help you such as another tutor or an instructor.
  • You can approach our front desk clerk and let them know you need help. The front desk clerk can direct them to the appropriate tutor or let you know when an appropriate tutor will be working.
  • Tutors will be actively walking around to see if anyone needs help.
