Tutoring Program

The Tutoring Program provides free tutoring services to all UNCP students who need further assistance in currently registered courses.

Led by a professional or peer tutor, each scheduled tutoring session will last approximately one hour in length. The tutor will help the student to better understand the course material by connecting ideas, forming concepts, explaining events, and asking questions that will help the student to increase their understanding of the course material.
