The Tutoring Center is now open for the Fall semester. Please be patient with us as we are still receiving tutor schedules. We will contact you with appointment information as soon as we are able to.
Covid 19 Bakersfield College Tutoring Center Team Protocol:
As the Bakersfield College Tutoring Center team continues to provide exceptional peer tutoring services to our students, we feel it's important that you be aware that in-person appointment(s) may change with minimal notice. In the event tutors or staff contract COVID 19 or are exposed to COVID 19 and are required to quarantine, your appointment may have to be cancelled or moved to online (Zoom). If this happens, you will receive an email notification of this change. Please check your Bakersfield College email frequently for appointment-related emails and other college-related updates.
We are a proven student success service that provides FREE tutoring both online and in-person to all currently enrolled Bakersfield College Students. Our one-on-one peer tutors, who are trained in a CRLA-certified course, 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 peer tutors, staff, and faculty look forward to meeting you and making your online or in-person appointment(s) an easy and rewarding experience.

All peer tutors complete a semester long certified tutor training course. The EDUC B7A Tutor Training and Practicum Level 1 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!
