Online Tutoring For Online Students

Through a partnership with Tutor.com, the Academic Support Center will offer 24/7 online tutoring for Fall and Spring semesters that connects students one-to-one with a subject expert tutor the minute they need assistance.

Under special circumstances online tutoring can be offered to students that are not online students. Please contact us at the ASC at 865-539-7079 for more information. Or stop by to speak to us in person about it.
