Frank Phillips College Online Tutoring Services        

Welcome to Frank Phillips College’s online tutoring assistance program for distance learning students.  We have a list of websites for study skills assistance, as well as a list of subject websites.  As a quick reference, add these sites to your favorites.  As you begin to prepare yourself, remember these short tips:

  • Your instructor is your first line of defense. Feel free to contact him or her with any questions you may have.
  • When emailing your instructor or tutor be prepared and direct with your questions so that you can receive maximum benefit from your instructor or tutor.
  • Communicate:  let your tutor know about grades, or remarks from your instructor as well as any other relevant information. 
  • Be involved in your session as a distance learner. Your tutor is your second line of defense. Stay in contact and let him or her know what is going on with your class work and how you are progressing.
  •  Be precise in your description when emailing your tutor. Remember, he or she will not have the information you have.

When can I email a tutor?
