Our Staff

We’ll match you with the best available tutor—Peer or Community—for your course and your needs. Complete the Request a Tutor form to get started.

Peer Tutors are current BCC students who are recommended by their professors to tutor in a certain course or subject. They bring a valuable connection to the classroom and faculty to their work. Peer Tutors must have earned a B or better in the course they wish to tutor.

Community Tutors are local people from a variety of backgrounds and expertise. Some have prior classroom experience, and all are able to offer a practical application of many fields of study.
