NBCC’s Tutoring Services - Options

Find a Tutor on Nimbus

Every NBCC student can receive up to 3 hours of tutoring per week (hours reset every Sunday at midnight) - FREE. Nimbus can be accessed through the App found here: 


Note: In some cases, you may be eligible to receive additional paid hours from NBCC; however, obtaining access requires the recommendation from a Learning Strategist. Additional Nimbus hours can also be purchased through the platform at the student’s expense.

Learning Circles (small group tutoring)

Learning Circles are topic-specific sessions coordinated by members of the Academic Coaching & Learner Services team. These sessions may be led by peer or professional tutors, that are intended to assist multiple students who are experiencing common challenges in a specific course or related to a particular learning barrier such as study skills or time management.

Learning Circles are FREE and students can attend as often as they wish. Please note that we are not always able to find suitable tutors for every course/program area, and session offerings are dependent on our ability to do so.
