Tutoring Services

There is a Student Success Center on the Catonsville, Dundalk and Essex campuses—as well as the Owings Mills extension center.

Students may also take advantage of our convenient online tutoring program.

Individual tutoring

This is the service most people associate with the Student Success Center. In an individual tutoring session a student works one-on-one with a tutor to go over assignments, clear up questions and generally advance learning skills. We recommend making an appointment in advance. Walk-ins will also be seen depending on availability.

Group tutoring

This service incorporates group interaction, directed by the tutor, as a dimension of the study process. This can be an effective way of learning, especially when several students are dealing with the same material.

Supplemental instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a program that targets difficult courses and places SI leaders in these classes.  SI leaders attend classes in order to guide students in weekly sessions, reviewing material and creating strategies for discussion and test taking.

Computer lab and study area

Your campus Student Success Center provides access to table study areas and computers equipped with software programs (including Microsoft Office Suite), making it easy for you to work on class-related assignments. You can also make use of assistive technology like JAWS and Kurzweil. Students may use the OneCard or sign in with their username and password to print.

Science models

Similar to what you'll find in your science labs, our science models will visually assist you with understanding anatomical, chemical, and biological structure and components. Students are allowed to work with the models anytime during normal operating hours and stay as long as they like, space allowing.
