Tutoring Services

Tutoring is a support service available to all Mercy College students. The Student Success Center employs peer tutors and non-peer tutors to assist students with courses. Knowledgeable tutors can assist students by reviewing the course material, answering questions, and reviewing for exams. When combined with other support services offered at Mercy College, tutoring becomes a powerful ally in learning complex course material.

Tutoring Information

  • Students may use the tutoring services at no charge.
  • Tutoring may be scheduled individually or with a group study table.
  • Students may request tutoring at anytime throughout the semester.
