Peer tutors are BMCC students who qualify to tutor others in select courses. Peer tutors must be recommended by the instructor of the subject they will be tutoring and approved by the Financial Assistance Office and Human Resources before they are able to begin their employment. To qualify as a peer tutor, students must be in good academic standing and have completed the coursework for the classes they tutor with a “B” grade or higher. Peer tutors are available to serve GED to college level students.
Professional tutors are qualified individuals who have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree and have been approved through the Office of Instruction to offer tutoring services to credit seeking, GED, ABE, or ESL students at BMCC.
We have tutors available at all of our BMCC locations. The hours of availability for tutors vary with location.
If you are not able to be at a location with a tutor, you can send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org for a tutor to contact you via Zoom or by telephone. Zoom is a web and video conferencing program that will allow you to see and hear the tutor over the internet. You will want to have both a web camera and microphone to get the most out of your Zoom tutoring appointment.
