Tutoring serves as a supplement to the classroom experience. Students are encouraged to attend class as scheduled, and then take advantage of tutoring services to reinforce concepts taught by the instructor.
Writing tutors are available to work with students on the writing process for Polk State College course assignments. During the interactive session, the tutors can assist with specific questions about the writing process, including brainstorming and planning, revising rough drafts, preparing citations, and formatting a document.
Tutoring support is available for varying levels of math. Students are encouraged to visit the math tutors regularly and to arrive prepared with current assignments and specific questions.
Computer tutors are available to assist students with coursework associated with computer courses.* These individuals can also provide assistance with completing computer-based assignments for Polk State College courses.
Tutors are available for various sciences in courses such as Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.* A tutor can assist with questions related to homework assignments, concepts and processes related to the subject, as well as formulas and equations used in the various disciplines.
Tutors are available to provide assistance with learning and practicing skills for the various languages taught at the College (e.g., Spanish, French, and American Sign Language).*

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses are designed for students who are non-native English speakers. EAP courses will teach you the language skills you need for your academic plan.
