Private Tutoring is not free for Brazosport College students.

The Math Center is often contacted by the community about private tutoring, which is paid by the person seeking assistance.   Not all Math Center tutors offer private tutoring.  For the tutors that  do offer private tutoring, sessions are scheduled outside of their Math Center work hours.

Some of the students are Brazosport College students that might have scheduling conflicts with the Math Center hours or seek  one-on-one tutoring. 

Other private tutoring is for community members that are not Brazosport College, such as students in K-12, or those seeking exam prep for assessments not offered by the Brazosport College Assessment Center.

Scheduling for private tutoring is done through the Tutor Matching Service (TMS) scheduling system.  Tutees have the option to pay for their sessions using a credit card or PayPal. 

To schedule a private tutoring session, or to learn more about Tutor Matching Service, click on the TMS logo located under Quick Links, on the right side of the page.
