Tutoring

One on one tutoring is available for most courses taught at Vermont Tech. Generally, we find tutors for about 95% of requests. Getting a tutor is not complicated and it is free, so if you want or need some support in your course work, don't hesitate to speak with Beth Camp, Student Support Specialist. She is located in 222 Conant and can also be reached by phone at 802-728-1396. Tutoring can also be requested in Room 406 on the Williston campus during open hours Monday-Friday, 12-4 pm.

In addition to individual and small group tutoring, drop-in assistance is available. Drop-in is a great place to come to do homework, get immediate answers to questions, or prepare for an exam.

On the Randolph campus, math and writing as well as some science classes are available Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3-5 pm and 6-9 pm in Conant 107.

On the Williston campus, drop-in assistance with writing is available four days a week whenever the writing tutors are free during the 12-4 pm office hours. Drop-in math tutoring is available 3 hours a week with Rachel Repstad. The exact schedule is posted each semester outside of Room 406.

The Center for Academic Success also provides test review sessions on a request basis as well as for math and science final exams. Final exam review sessions are a very popular way to prepare for finals. If you would like to set up a review for tests or exams, contact Beth.

Current students can request a tutor by filling out the tutor request form. Please login with the same username and password that you use to access the portal.

If you have questions, concerns or suggestions, do not hesitate to contact anyone at the Center for Academic Success!

Service Dogs at Vermont Technical College

Vermont Technical College supports the use of individually trained service dogs, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act, for the benefit of individuals with documented disabilities. All service dogs must be registered with the Learning Specialist, Robin Goodall, at rgoodall@vtc.edu or 802-728-1278.

Individually trained service dogs may reside in a residence hall in the room of their owner who is solely responsible for the animal’s behavior and sanitary conditions. Any damage caused by a service dog will be billed to the owner as per VTC Policy 611.

Service animals in classroom, labs and other learning environments must be under the control of the owner at all times. Owners should respect the rights of others in the learning setting by ensuring that the dog is not disruptive. Disruptive dogs will be prohibited from being in learning environments. In all other campus settings, owners must abide by the provisions of VTC Policy 611. Service dogs are prohibited from kitchens and food preparation areas, utility rooms and hazardous service areas.

For students in nursing and allied health clinical settings, please contact the clinic for their policy as it relates to service dogs.
