Distance Tutoring

If you can't come to an MATC campus for tutoring, why not try Distance Tutoring? These services are available for all MATC college students. Distance Tutoring will be particularly valuable if you are taking online courses.

 

The Online Tutor

Free Online Tutoring is offered to MATC college students for most college-level courses. To contact the Online Tutor, send an email to: tutor@matc.edu. Write your first and last name in the subject line. Include the following in the body of your email:

  1. Your student ID#
  2. Course name
  3. Course number (for example, MATH-201-001)
  4. Textbook name and page number
  5. Problem number (if applicable)
  6. Describe your question in detail

The Online Tutor's responsibility is to:

  • Help clarify concepts
  • Help you understand the problem
  • Help you solve the problem
  • Give you the tools you need to succeed in your class (not to do your homework for you)
  • Respond within one business day

The Online Tutor may use these techniques to help you solve a problem:

  • Provide formulas, theorems, or ideas that are needed to solve the problem
  • Help break the problem down into steps to make the problem easier to understand and solve
  • Explain or help clarify the concept that is not understood
  • Show where the mistake was made and how to correct it
  • Point to a similar example in the textbook
