New England College is committed to providing academic tutoring services, free of charge, to all its students!
We believe that students experience higher levels of academic success when they take charge of their own learning. Therefore, our primary objective is to facilitate academic success while encouraging students to become independent learners.
Tutoring and Academic Support is staffed by professional and peer tutors who work with students on a variety of academic skills while also working closely with faculty and staff to encourage students to excel in their academic goals.
Professional tutors employ a variety of academic strategies to address the individual needs of students in a welcoming and supportive environment.
Scheduled, and drop-in, tutoring is provided by the professional tutors in:
- Writing development
- Critical reading skills
- Time management
- Study techniques
- Test-taking strategies
- Goal-setting processes
- Select subject tutoring in a number of academic disciplines – including mathematics and the sciences.
Peer tutors offer a wide variety of content specific tutoring to supplement the professional tutoring services. Peer tutors have taken and excelled in the courses for which they tutor and have been recommended by their instructors.
In addition to professional tutors, NEC also has a variety of course-specific peer tutors.
If you think that you might be interested in becoming a peer tutor, or if you are a faculty member and would like to recommend a student for peer tutoring, you can download and fill out the Peer Tutor Application or the Peer Tutor Recommendation Form or contact Megan Beeso for more information.
Our Peer Tutors:
- Kyle: Criminal Justice
- John: QR, Accounting, and Economics
- Sean: All Sciences, Math, and Intro to 2D Design
- Kayla: Photography, Adobe Suite, Art History, Time management, Organization, and Study skills
Tutoring and Academic Support works collaboratively with the Office of Student Access and Accommodations to facilitate testing for students that are eligible for accommodations.
Collaboration with Faculty
Tutors work closely with faculty to facilitate student success. In addition to communicating with faculty about appointments conducted with students, some additional ways that tutoring can support faculty include:
- Class visits to quickly introduce ourselves and our services
- Skill-specific workshops meant to take up a part of or the entire class period
- Overseeing or facilitating a study group
- Classroom embedding

In order to better protect the health and safety of students and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the following changes:
In Henniker, the temporary location is the Sayce Lounge on the 4th floor of the Simon Center. In Manchester, no changes to location have been made.
Students may only have one in-person appointment per week. All additional appointments must be virtual.
All drop-in appointments must be virtual. Only scheduled in-person appointments are permitted to be in the Tutoring and Academic Support Centers.
All scheduling must be done over email, phone, or the Navigate app. Students should not schedule in person unless they are scheduling a follow up appointment during an occurring in-person appointment.
We thank you for your commitment to keeping our campus and community safe! For more information on NEC’s COVID-19 specific policies, click here.
