Although all TCC Tutoring Centers accept walk-ins, it is generally better for the student to make an appointment to ensure that the tutor is available to meet with them.

How do students cancel an appointment?

Students can cancel an appointment through the email they received when setting up their appointment. If a student contacts a staff member instead of going through their email, gather the following information and contact the tutor to let them know the student has cancelled:

  • Name of the tutor
  • Date and Time of the appointment
  • Appointment type (for example, Accounting, English, Math, etc.)
