More Online Tutoring

If a CR tutor/subject is not available, try STAR-CA or NetTutor!
STAR-CA is staffed by California community college tutors and NetTutor is a private, national tutoring company.

STAR-CA Q&A

STAR-CA is a shared, online tutoring program between California community colleges. Participating colleges have their tutors work an extra shift with STAR-CA to share their subject expertise and availability. In return, students have access to extended tutoring availability and subjects.

Tutors are from other California community colleges! The tutors work at their home tutoring centers and donate hours to online tutoring via STAR.

 

NetTutor Q&A

NetTutor is an online tutoring resource that allows students to chat with a tutor using text, audio, or video. Students may also submit a question or paper and get feedback emailed to them. Tutoring is available in most subjects.

 

All tutors have at least a Bachelor's Degree in their subject and experience working in education.

Tutoring in Math and English is available 24 hours a day, most other subjects also have wide availability. You can find a complete tutoring schedule by subject in the EOPS Canvas site. 

 

EOPS students can access STAR-CA by logging into the EOPS Canvas site and clicking on the NetTutor tab.

EOPS History

The Story Behind the Nickel and the Nails
The Nickel and the Nails are fitting symbols for the Extended Opportunity Program and Services. Why a nickel and nail? As the story goes, a young man in the deep South was walking down a dirt road on the way to visit his lady friend, dejected by the fact that the nickel in his pocket was all he had to his name. But as he walked, he noticed two old horseshoe nails, twisted together into a knot, by the side of the road. He picked them up and put them in his pocket, thereby quickly gaining a little pride and dignity by having "something to jingle."

EOPS makes educational success more possible and education more accessible while encouraging a strong sense of pride and dignity, increasing students' self-esteem and motivation.
