  1. Find a Tutor  |   By going through the different search options, you should be able to find the perfect tutor fit, someone who has the right expertise to help you get ahead in your course. Tip: An example of searching by Subject is: Math > Algebra. An example of searching by Course is: MTH120.
  2. Book or message the Tutor   At some point it will ask you to create a TMS account. We recommend using your Rock Valley College email address to do that. It will want to verify your RVC email, so be sure that you can access that. Be Sure to Select Central Time Zone! After finding a tutor, check their calendar and see if there is a time that works for you. If there is, go ahead and book the tutor. If not, feel free to message the Tutor to suggest a different time.
  3. Check-out  |  It will take you less than a minute to go through the checkout process to confirm your tutoring session. You'll get a confirmation message as soon as you checkout. The tutor will get the same message, which will provide you and the tutor with a link to where you should meet. It will also include the date and time, as well as other important information.
