The Zone offers free tutors, lab

Staff Writer

Many students would argue that studying and doing homework on campus before heading home is the best way to stay on top of grades. Many who stand behind this philosophy find the library a place to call home, but what about those who need extra, personalized help in a specific subject? The Zone exists to accommodate the needs of students by providing tutors and a computer lab free to students with their KC I.D. It is located in the Student Support Building, Room 119.

Services include a fully functioning computer lab, free printing and tutoring in most core subjects (including English, speech, government, history, criminal justice, math, physics, computer science and chemistry).

The information desk in the lab is available for any questions regarding the time a specific tutor will be present. Tutors are students who come to The Zone at regular times during the week.

The Zone is open from 7:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday – Thursday and the computer lab is open from 7:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. on Friday (no tutors).

A student interested in becoming a tutor must have at least 30 hours of college credit, have a minimum GPA of a 3.0, possess strong leadership skills and the ability to work effectively with little supervision and must be professional, courteous and trustworthy with confidential information.
