Online Tutoring

Get the knowledge and skills you need to be successful in your college classes. Online Tutoring is available for a variety of subjects at no cost to you.

Online Learning Commons

Online tutoring is offered through the PC.LearningCommons.Students course in Canvas. PC students may meet with a live tutor, submit a paper for review, or submit a math or science question.

Live Tutoring:

Meet with an online tutor from your computer or cell phone! Live tutoring uses Google Meet to video chat and/or share your screen with a tutor (click here for a tutorial). Tutoring is available for math, writing, science, and many more subjects. Just click on the “Online Tutoring Room” link from the front page of the PC.LearningCommons.Students course during our hours. Fall Hours: Mon-Thurs 10am-8pm

Writing Lab:

Submit a paper from any course to our online writing lab. Your writing tutor will provide feedback on strengths and improvements, but will not simply edit the paper. Tutors will respond within 24 hours for weekday submissions and within 48 hours for weekend submissions. You will receive a notification when feedback is submitted through your Maricopa email address. Visit the Writing Center website for more information.

Ask a Question:

Math and science question boards are available for you to post a question when you are unable to meet with a live tutor. Math/science tutors will assist you by working similar problems and/or locating resources to help you learn the topic. Tutors will respond within 24 hours for weekday submissions and within 48 hours for weekend submissions. A tutor will notify you through Canvas Inbox when they have replied to your post. Please note all questions must be posted on the question board and not sent directly to the tutor in Canvas Inbox.

Email: learningcommons@phoenixcollege.edu for questions about online tutoring or to request an appointment.
