Drop-in tutoring refers to on campus tutoring that happens face-to-face in the Math Center rooms, E.201 and E.203. This is the most used type of tutoring. One on one tutoring is not guaranteed, but during the times when the Math Center is not busy, you might receive attention that is more specialized.

In-Person: By Appointment Only Tutoring

By Appointment Only tutoring is for face-to-face tutoring. These 1.5 hour sessions are held in the Math Center rooms, E.201 and E.203, which are located in the Student Success Center (SSC).

Scheduling must be done ahead of time, through our scheduling service, Tutor Matching Service (TMS). Please make your request at least 24 hours in advance. To schedule a tutoring session, click on the TMS logo located under Quick Links, on the right side of the page.  You will need to verify your BC student email through TMS to receive tutoring for free.

Community

Private Tutoring is not free for Brazosport College students.

The Math Center is often contacted by the community about private tutoring, which is paid by the person seeking assistance.   Not all Math Center tutors offer private tutoring.  For the tutors that  do offer private tutoring, sessions are scheduled outside of their Math Center work hours.

Some of the students are Brazosport College students that might have scheduling conflicts with the Math Center hours or seek  one-on-one tutoring. 

Other private tutoring is for community members that are not Brazosport College, such as students in K-12, or those seeking exam prep for assessments not offered by the Brazosport College Assessment Center.

Scheduling for private tutoring is done through the Tutor Matching Service (TMS) scheduling system.  Tutees have the option to pay for their sessions using a credit card or PayPal. 

To schedule a private tutoring session, or to learn more about Tutor Matching Service, click on the TMS logo located under Quick Links, on the right side of the page.
