Need a Tutor?

Kris Need a little one-on-one help with your assignments?

No worries - contact me, Kris, and I can set you up with a tutor. You can work with them a little bit or a lot - whatever you need to help you succeed. We have tutors in most subject areas and they can help with things like time management, accountability, and procrastination.

If you feel like exploring a 24/7 online tutoring option, login to Net Tutor, located in the Tools section of your Blackboard course. Share how your NetTutor experience went with Kris or Kirsten in the Learning Commons.
