Working with students individually or in small groups, tutors provide assistance with specific content areas, basic skills, and study skills. The Success Centers have a staff of peer and professional tutors to assist students with SWIC courses.

Free in-person and online tutoring is available for SWIC students.


In-person tutoring is available at each campus Success Center. Check the tutoring schedules for details about courses, times and tutor availability at each campus.


SCOTY graphic update

Online tutoring through the Success Center Online Tutoring for You (SCOTY) allows students and tutors to connect through MS Teams.

After hours, students can drop a question for the tutors to review during operating hours.


Students can now access tutoring after hours through NetTutor. NetTutor offers live and on-demand online tutoring in over 150 subjects. Tutors are subject matter experts trained in how to translate tutoring best practices and learning strategies to support students online, one student at a time. NetTutor is available to SWIC students when the Belleville Success Center is closed – primarily evenings and all day Saturday and Sunday. Students should continue to use SCOTY (Success Center Online Tutoring for You) during Success Center hours and the OWL (Online Writing Lab) for all paper drop off needs.


Students access SCOTY and After Hours tutoring through their Brightspace platform. Links for Online Tutoring and After Hours Tutoring are in the Student Services Drop-Down Menu.

How can I make the most of tutoring?

Start early in the semester

Don’t wait until it’s too late! The earlier you come in, the better our tutors can help!

Come prepared

Bring your books, syllabus, assignments, notes, and any questions you have.


Let us know how we can help you! If there is something you don’t understand, ask for clarification

Be engaged and actively participate

Put away cell phones and devices to get the most out of your tutoring session.

Have realistic expectations

The Success Centers can help you on your way to success, but tutoring sessions cannot replace regular, attentive class attendance.

Remember the key to S_CCESS is U!

It is up to you to take the initiative to succeed, so visit the Success Center early and often!
