Online tutoring is also available to all Manhattan Tech students. The TLC has partnered with Brainfuse to bring live, one-on-one online tutoring to all Manhattan Tech students.

Brainfuse online tutors are available according to the schedule listed HERE.
How Do I Meet With A Tutor?
Don’t worry it’s easy. You can either stop by the TLC during open hours to make an appointment, or send an email to TLC@manhattantech.edu. Please be specific with time and date. If there are conflicts we will respond and let you know. We also encourage you to stop by the TLC and talk to a peer tutor.
Student peer tutors allow colleges to meet the needs of students within many academic disciplines. Being a peer tutor can help students build valuable communication skills, reinforce their own knowledge, and provide self-confidence needed in demanding labor markets.
Currently the TLC employs several peer tutors specializing in math and algebra, writing and communications, science, medication math, welding, drafting, and networking. These positions are funded by a Federal Title III Grant.
For more information about peer tutoring or information about how to become a peer tutor please contact Darren S. Ortega, Coordinator of the Teaching & Learning Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
