Private Online Tutoring with Tutor Matching Service
Tutor Matching Service (TMS) is an online tutor list that matches students with tutors for online tutoring sessions for ECU courses, subject review, and standardized testing preparation.  PASC staff have collaborated with Tutor Matching Service for the convenience of students who either opt to not use  PASC services or would rather have a private tutor.  TMS tutors offer their services on a pay-per-session basis.  They set their rates themselves, and you pay them directly through TMS by credit card.  All ECU enrolled students receive $50 in free tutoring each summer session and semester.

To log on to Tutor Matching Service use:
Be sure to use  your ECU e-mail to log into TMS @ ECU.

Look for PASC Badges
The Pirate Academic Success Center provides "badges" for student tutors who have been recommended by PASC staff, trained and certified by the PASC, or who have been endorsed by ECU academic departments.

The Pirate Academic Success Center and East Carolina University has no oversight over TMS tutoring services and does not make any recommendation regarding outside tutors and their appropriateness to tutor inside the subject areas they have self-selected to tutor.

While you should always check out first the many tutoring and academic support services that we offer at no extra charge, the PASC is excited to offer this new partnership with Tutor Matching Service as an additional resource for East Carolina University students!
