Portland Community College | Portland, Oregon Portland Community College

Fall Term Tutoring: September 27 – December 9

Tutors from PCC’s district Academic Support centers have joined together to offer FREE TUTORING through Zoom and Google Meet platforms. Connect with experienced faculty, alumni, professional and student tutors from all campuses using our drop-in (no appointment necessary) tutoring or scheduled online appointments. Interact with your tutor via a microphone, webcam, or a text-based chat box. Tutors use an interactive whiteboard to diagram concepts, and students can share their screens to review documents and clarify course material together.

Questions? Send us an email: academic-support@pcc.edu
