Tutoring FAQs

Tutoring assistance is available free of charge to all Tri-County Technical College students.
Yes. The majority of our appointments are one-on-one sessions with a professional tutor.
Yes, groups of two or more students may make appointments for group tutoring sessions. Group tutoring is great for test, midterm, or exam review.

Yes, but please schedule no more than one appointment in any one subject in a day.
Be sure to cancel your appointment through Starfish or call 864-646-1367 to ask that the appointment be canceled for you; otherwise, the tutor will enter an outcome on Starfish marking you as a no show.
Yes, online tutoring is available during our business hours. We are also developing handouts and resources that can be accessed day or night at any time.
At the Pendleton Campus, be sure to check in at the front desk or notify a staff member that you are present. When you make an appointment through Starfish, you receive a confirmation e-mail giving the name of your tutor. If you are a walk-in, tell the person at the main desk the type of tutoring you need-writing, math, biology, etc. If no one is at the main desk, talk to a tutor or to the Tutoring Services Coordinator. At the Easley campus, go directly to room 106; at the Anderson Campus, go directly to the Learning Commons.
