How to Request an Appointment

Right now, we can only offer one tutoring session per day for each student. We are working diligently to improve this, so we appreciate your patience with us as we work out the kinks. 

Submit your tutoring request to CCD.Excel@ccd.edu  
  • This must be done at least two hours before you want to meet with a tutor. 
  • Tutoring will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis and will do our best to serve you.
  • Same-day appointments are not guaranteed, but we will do our best to accommodate you
Emailed requests must include the following:
  • Email Subject Line: Tutoring Request: Course Number  (EXAMPLE: Tutoring Request, MAT 121)
  • Student name and S# 
  • Brief description of assignment and help requested
  • Dates and times that you are available for tutoring within the next week 

Webex Access 

Students do not need a Webex account to join Webex meetings.

  • When your tutoring session is confirmed, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to the Webex meeting time.
  • Click on the "Join Meeting” button in the confirmation email to connect to your appointment. You may be asked to download a browser version of the Webex application if you are using a laptop or smartphone.
  • You can enter the appointment room up to 5 minutes before your appointment. 

Missed Appointments 

If you are going to miss an appointment, please reply to your appointment confirmation email. That way, we can give the time to a fellow student who is also in need of tutoring. 

  • Your email reply should include the following:
