As a Bainbridge State College student, you have access to tutoring for most courses offered at the college. See the Academic Resource Center page for more about meeting with campus tutors face to face or online.
In addition to our local tutors, you have access to extended online tutoring through a service called Brainfuse. Tutors are equipped to help you understand concepts and provide assistance with mastering the content of your courses. They do not have knowledge of your particular course details, so they cannot explain assignments or answer questions about requirements of your course. They are there to help tutor you, as needed, in mastering course content. You may also submit up to four papers per semester for analysis to help you improve your writing.
Online tutoring is available from 2 p.m. until 11 p.m. seven days a week, and for math, it is available 24/7. These services are available only while you are currently enrolled at Bainbridge State College.
