Frequently Asked Questions

Tutoring is free for all currently enrolled Harper students. Tutoring is available for community members for a small fee.

Bring any materials you have, such as your laptop, syllabus, textbook, notes, assignment sheet, readings.

Come sooner rather than later. You can work with a tutor at any point in the assignment process - you do not need to have finished your assignment to work with a tutor.

Tutors can clarify points from lectures, labs, discussions, or assigned readings. Tutors will show students how to become independent learners; however, tutors cannot complete homework for students, grade assignments, or help with tests/quizzes.

Every semester, we hire students to work at our front desk, tutor, and become SI Leaders. Contact us at asc@harpercollege.edu for more information.
