Tutoring

Welcome to the North Central State Online tutoring page! Our tutors are here to help you reach your goals and earn your degree or certificate. They will work with you to help you grasp the content of courses as well as impart the study skills needed to master the content. We offer free online tutoring and if you live close to our Mansfield location, we offer face-to-face tutoring as well.

Online Tutoring

North Central State Online offers free online tutoring to students using Zoom technology (requires a webcam and microphone). All online students will be sent a request to join an online tutoring module through Canvas. In order to use this resource, you will need to join. You can then request an appointment by logging into Canvas and choosing the online tutoring hub located under your course listing. From here, send a message stating the course in which you need tutoring, and the times you are available. You should expect a response within 48 hours.

The Online Tutoring Canvas hub also has the following:

  • an archive of additional studying and learning resources
  • the ability to submit a draft of a paper to a tutor for feedback
  • an “ask questions” feature allowing you to send questions to tutors

If you need help in any area for which no tutor is available, every effort is made to recruit a tutor in the needed subject.

Face-to-Face Tutoring

Face-to-face tutoring is provided by both peer and professional tutors.  This type of tutoring provides free individualized assistance across a number of subject areas. Peer tutors are faculty recommended, proficient in their subject matter and extensively trained in the art of learning, but still approachable, relatable and welcoming.

This option is for students who prefer to study more independently, at their own pace and on a flexible schedule, but who appreciate having tutors and resources available when they need extra help. We have drop-in tutors for many courses.  The tutors can help you identify your preferred learning style, develop more effective study habits and time management skills, and provide you with the academic tools for success.

This option is best for students preferring more one-on-one, comprehensive tutoring. Tutoring by appointment is available in most subjects offered at North Central State College.

If you have additional questions, please contact Barbara Keener at 419-755-4539 or bkeener@ncstatecollege.edu.  You may also call the Tutoring Resource Center at 419-755-4812.
