ASC: Supports for Students - Tutoring

An Introduction to Tutoring

Tutors increase student success by working alongside Red River College Polytechnic students to improve content knowledge and academic learning skills. Our tutors help students review, practice, and question new material learned in class and assist students in building the foundational skills needed for success in River College Polytechnic. Tutors strive to help students become independent and confident life-long learners through providing tutorial services in a safe, supportive environment that accommodates a diversity of learning and cultural backgrounds.
