Tutoring Center

Online support is available for enrolled Edgecombe Community College students. Students can request a tutor using the Student Online Tutoring Form. For the Summer 2020 term, online appointments are available Monday – Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. In Starfish, students can also reach out to tutors by raising the flag labeled I Need Help In a Course.

ECC offers academic support for students enrolled in curriculum courses who are having difficulty performing English or math skills that are essential to successful completion of these courses. Both the Tarboro and Rocky Mount campuses provide a Learning Center staffed by professional English and math tutors. Tutors are available to tutor other subjects as needed. The purpose of these centers is to provide assistance to those students who need periodic help in addition to in-class instruction or to those who need continuous help. There is no fee for this service.

The purpose of the Tutor Program is to assist students who are experiencing academic difficulties or need additional support in specific courses. Tutors provide additional individualized instruction and support necessary to help students achieve academic success at the College. A student may request tutoring assistance by going to the Tutoring Center on either campus. There is no fee for tutoring services.

The Tutoring Center also extends its services to ECC graduates who might need help with classes at their transfer institutions, even if these alumni are no longer taking any courses with us. Just walk in during our open lab times to receive help. No appointment is necessary.
