The Tutoring Center is now open and accepting tutoring requests for the summer semester. Please be patient with us as we are still receiving tutor schedules. We will email you with appointment information as quickly as possible.
We are a proven student success service that provides FREE tutoring online to all currently enrolled Bakersfield College Students. Our one-on-one Peer Tutors, who are trained and CRLA certified, can assist you with many Bakersfield College courses. Assistance with course content, assignments, required papers (at any stage of the writing process), and/or academic skills are available through drop-in and scheduled appointments for most BC courses.
The Tutoring Center tutors, staff, and faculty look forward to meeting you and making your online appointment(s) an easy and rewarding experience.

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!
