Tutoring And Support

The Tutoring Center is here to support you academically and we’ll be assisting you virtually for the Spring semester. Tutoring is available for you through our virtual center using Blackboard Collaborate. STAR NY and ThinkingStorm also partner with us to support your tutoring needs

Blackboard Collaborate will allow you and an RCC tutor to engage with each other and feel like you’re in the same room—with your favorite devices. Tutoring will continue to function through its unique platform of appointments and drop-ins. If you’re interested in Drop-In Tutoring, click on one of the links below during the scheduled hours!
