Finding a college tutor can be more difficult that finding a high school or middle school tutor. In college there is not as much support or assistance from the teacher and you typically don’t know everyone in your class. Previously it would have been easy to ask one of your classmates for help, but in college sometimes that can be difficult since you don’t always have the same people in you class.
Getting help from professors can also be difficult. Yes most professors have “office hours”, but are you going to be waiting in line with the rest of your class for extra help? And if you do actually manage to get help from your professor, is maybe 30 minutes enough?
Finding a local college tutor is the best solution because you possibly find someone that is majoring in the same thing that you are and has already taken the class, or you might be able to find someone that knows the material enough to be able to help you.
Another option for college students to get help is to visit the college teaching center, or learning center it sometimes is called. At these “learning centers” college students can get help usually for free in just about any subject. The only catch is if you are taking an upper level class, the tutor might not be able to help you. Sure the tutor can help you with
Math 101 or Physics 102, but can they help you with your Frog Chemistry And Anatomy 315?
