Great Bay Community College offers tutoring on both the Portsmouth and Rochester campuses in a variety of formats through the Center for Academic Planning and Support (CAPS). These services are FREE of charge to students enrolled in a credit-bearing class and are an essential part of CAPS. CAPS employs both peer and professional tutors to facilitate learning in a variety of contexts. Students have the option to join a study group, access the Math and Writing Centers, or work one-on-one with an assigned staff member. Our tutors are dedicated to helping students succeed, become independent and interdependent learners, and reach their academic goals.
In Portsmouth, all appointment tutoring is within CAPS or a designated room on campus. Drop-in times for the Math and Writing Centers are posted in CAPS and below.
In Rochester, most tutoring is on a drop-in basis. The tutors can assist with several different subjects and have set hours when students can receive help – see link below for more information. If necessary, students may also submit a tutor request form or speak with the Enrollment & Academic Support Counselor to find an alternative time.
