About the Tutoring Center

Free Services for Every Mitchell Student

The Tutoring Center offers free tutoring to all current Mitchell College students in subjects across the curriculum. The goal of tutoring is to help students overcome academic challenges and lead them to autonomous or independent learning.

The Center provides personalized support for studying and learning with respect to individual learning differences. We promote independence in learning to help students overcome academic challenges and achieve greater academic performance.

NOTE: Students enrolled in Thames at Mitchell receive academic and social support through that program.

Measurable Learning Outcomes

Mitchell students who use the Tutoring Center report a very high degree of satisfaction with the services we provide. We know that because we survey them regularly on their success in achieving the following objectives:

  • Articulating their needs to their tutors so they can create actionable goals
  • Applying study strategies they learn during tutoring session(s) to improve conceptualization and retention of the course material
  • Solidifying their foundational knowledge of course material

I am falling behind and I don’t know what to do.

I need help with writing a paper. Fast!

My course work feels overwhelming.

Tutors Who Are Educators

While many colleges offer peer tutoring, all of the tutors in Mitchell’s Tutoring Center are trained professionals with advanced degrees. The majority are professors who have taught courses at Mitchell and have “hands-on” experience with the curriculum. This gives our tutors the advantage of combining their subject area expertise with a wide range of support services.

Easy Access

Access to tutoring is just one click away! Students can sign up for sessions through the student portal through the Insight-Simplicity tool (students must use their Mitchell College account to log in).

Students simply make an appointment with the tutor who covers the subject area they want to work on. The Center is conveniently located in the center of campus on the first floor of the Duques Center.

A few words on fit.


"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.


If you are looking for a college that: 


  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual

  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways

  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success

  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience

  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience

  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities

  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences

  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world

  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities




…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
