Drop-In Writing Assistance
The Academic Support Center has faculty from a variety of disciplines available to assist students with questions relating to writing assignments and projects including research papers, essays, citations, cover letters for jobs, etc. Students can call in advance to set up appointments at a particular time or with a specific faculty member, or you can walk in at any time faculty are scheduled and wait for an opening. See Tutoring Appointments, below, for information on setting up an appointment. Some faculty are available for consultation online as well as in-person, as noted in the chart below. Students wishing to consult online are strongly encouraged to call and set up an appointment in advance.
Drop-in Writing Assistance is also available at the Klamath-Trinity site.

Tutoring for Specific Courses:
In addition to the drop-in writing assistance described above, tutors are also available for course-specific tutoring. Peer tutors are current CR students who have been recommended by faculty
for their content-area knowledge. Peer tutors have recently completed
the courses they are tutoring and have a peer perspective on how to
approach learning in their specific disciplines. Peer tutors have also
been trained to facilitate learning, and they also integrate a variety
of learning and study strategies into their tutoring sessions. Peer
tutors may be available by appointment.
Additional tutoring services are provided by the staff of the Academic Support Center. These are professional tutors with degrees in their respective
disciplines and also have had instructional and tutoring experience. They have been trained to facilitate student learning, and they integrate a
variety of learning and study strategies (such as notetaking and
test-taking) into their tutoring sessions so that students may be
successful in their classes.
Stop by the ASC to check in the
availability of tutoring for your course!
Tutoring appointments for a variety of subjects may be set up in ½ hour or 1 hour increments. The first tutoring appointment of the semester is typically 1 hour long. To find out if a tutor is available in the subject you need, or to schedule a tutoring appointment, please call 707-476-4154.
- Those students interested in ongoing tutoring should first meet with a tutor to discuss the goals of tutoring, the roles and responsibilities of each party, and the terms of ASC tutoring policies.
- We ask that students sign a tutoring contract if they intend to continue tutorial services. They should also fill out a student intake profile to give tutors an understanding of their study strategies and methods.
- To check in for a tutoring appointment, learners will need their CR ID card or number.
Students needing additional help with their Math courses also may find it helpful to sign up for the Math Lab. The Math Lab is an optional Math course (either MATH 52 or MATH 252) separate from your regular
mathematics course. It offers instructional support for mathematics
students in a drop-in, self-paced lab environment, and data shows that students who attend Math Lab do better in their math courses than students who do not take Math Lab. Even students who are enrolled in MATH 30S or MATH 15S should enroll in Math Lab for additional homework help!
For more information about the Math Lab courses and to see the current schedule, please look go to the Math Lab web site.
