Tutoring & Testing

We provide free one-on-one and walk-in tutoring for current MTC students. Tutoring is offered for most general education classes and, when available, for technology-specific courses upon request.

Tutoring isn’t a substitute for lectures or independent studying and students must regularly attend the class for which they are seeking assistance. If you are not regularly attending class, tutoring will be suspended.

One-on-One Tutoring

If you are struggling with your classes, complete the online tutor request form or pick one up in the Student Resource Center (SRC). Don’t wait until you are behind or failing!

You will be matched with a specific tutor who can help you throughout the term. Once you are matched, you and the tutor decide how often and when you will meet. Students may receive up to 3 hours of one-on-one tutoring a week per course being tutored.

One-on-one tutoring is good if you are having regular difficulty in a class and should occur in the SRC unless pre-approved by the tutor coordinator.

Walk-in Tutoring

You don’t have to apply or pre-schedule for walk-in tutoring, but specific dates and subjects vary from term to term so check the schedule before you attend.

During walk-in sessions, a tutor for a specific subject or course will be available to work with any MTC student who attends. Walk-in tutoring is great if you have only a few questions about your work, or for students who like to study with others.

You may attend as many open lab hours as you need.

Become a Tutor

We are always looking for current MTC students who are willing to tutor other students. Tutors must have earned an A or B in the classes they want to tutor and a faculty recommendation is preferred.

Tutors are students first and we work around your classes each term. You are not required to work a minimum number of hours. Tutors receive an hourly wage, but we cannot guarantee a steady number of hours throughout the year. The amount of hours a tutor can earn varies depending on the needs and attendance of our students.

If you are interested in becoming a tutor at MTC, print the Tutor Referral Form (or pick up a copy from the SRC) and have a faculty member complete and sign the bottom section. You will need to schedule an interview with the tutor coordinator and come prepared with a current passport or two pieces of identification: one with a picture (such as a driver’s license) and one proving your citizenship (such as a social security card) and your recommendation letters.
