Tunxis is operating under special conditions:

As a precaution due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus), college buildings are currently closed and all classes will be held online-only starting Monday, March 23.

All students should check their student email and Blackboard Learn for directions from their individual instructors.  FULL INFORMATION HERE.

We’re Open, Online!

The Academic Success & Tutoring Center has moved online!  Remote tutoring will utilize Microsoft Teams, which is included as a part of Office 365 (where you check your student email).  You can view training videos on Microsoft Teams at tunxis.edu/teamstutoring (log in with your NetID, just as you would for myCommNet or Blackboard).  You may still schedule tutoring appointments in TutorTrac at tunxis.edu/tutortrac.

Please check your student email and this page for further updates and email tx-asc@tunxis.edu with any questions.

The Academic Success and Tutoring Center offers FREE individual and group tutoring to Tunxis students. Our trained peer tutors and professional staff specialize in tutoring math, developmental English and English as a Second Language. Depending on the semester, the ASTC may provide tutoring in other courses.
