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 many 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.

Additional online tutoring services are available through Smarthinking.  Login to D2L to access "online tutoring".
