All Peer Tutors complete a semester long certified tutor training course. The ACDV B5 Tutor Training and Practicum course has been recognized with an International Tutor Training Program Certification (ITTPC) through the College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA). Interested in becoming a tutor? If you are a current BC student, you may be eligible to tutor if you have earned at least a "B" in a specific course and have been recommended by a professor. For more information, contact Tutoring Center staff.
Working as a Peer Tutor provides personal and academic growth, school involvement, exposure to a professional work environment, an opportunity to make new friends, and learning the ins and outs of tutoring as a job. Most importantly, Peer Tutors support BC students in achieving academic success!

Bakersfield College offers every student the opportunity to work with a tutor at no cost to become more successful in their courses. Some of the benefits of NetTutor include:
NetTutor is a comprehensive online tutoring service for all levels of college courses. All of the tutors are highly-trained experts in the course you are taking. NetTutor allows you to meet with a tutor from anywhere—you just need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with Internet access. Tutors are ready to assist you!
If you are taking a course using Canvas, visit the NetTutor link in the course navigation menu.
For scheduling information, visit NetTutor's live tutoring schedule.
Availability for courses is as follows:
When a tutor is available, you will automatically be brought into a tutorial room. Then, a cowbell will ring—this lets you know the session has begun. Your tutor will help you work the problem out and give you hints if you get stuck. Please come prepared to learn!
For more information, watch NetTutor tutorials on YouTube.
The Q&A Center allows you to ask a question offline, which a tutor will usually answer within 24 hours. When an answer has been prepared, you will receive an email notifying you that your question is ready. After you review the answer, you can ask a follow-up question.
NetTutor works with Windows and Macintosh, and in almost any browser. After you log-in, a browser test will confirm that your computer is compatible with NetTutor. If anything is missing, the test will tell you where to find it.
If you have any questions or technical difficulties, visit the Customer Service Request link within NetTutor and fill out the form. You may also call the NetTutor Customer Support Team at (813) 674-0660 x204, or email them directly at email@example.com.
