Peer Tutoring

Whether you are stuck on a specific problem or need help writing a paper, our tutors are here to help. Student tutoring allows you the ease of talking with a classmate with the comfort of knowing they have been recommended by faculty. They know what they are talking about and they speak your language.

If the courses or subject areas you need support in are not listed, please speak with our academic advising team at advising@pc.fsu.edu, to arrange a tutor. To request remote tutoring through the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) on the Tallahassee campus, email tutor@fsu.edu. It may take 24 hours to hear back from ACE, so be proactive and plan ahead.
