Tutoring Services

This is an image of Tutoring Services Mission Statement: Tutoring Services empowers students and community members to develop their potential and progress toward independent learning in academic, career, and personal pursuits by offering accessible, targeted support.

Wouldn't it be nice to talk to somebody one-on-one?  Everybody needs a little help sometimes. That's why Heartland offers free tutoring!

  • Do you have a busy schedule and need support outside of typical business hours? 
  • Do you want to work with the same person every week or just drop-in when you need help?
  • Do you have questions about a math or science assignment?
  • Do you need help writing a paper?
  • Do you need help using Canvas or Zoom?
  • Do you want help planning out a project? 

We can help you with all of this and more! Check out our services below.  Work with us on campus or online today!
