Academic Support Center
Tutoring for the Summer 2013 semester will begin Monday, June 10th.
Welcome to the Academic Support Center
The Academic Support Center assists students in fully developing their personal and academic skills, concepts, and confidence by providing guidance, encouragement and opportunity to grow in a friendly learner-centered environment. We provide the services to help students obtain and improve essential skills that promote learning and develop or upgrade career skills.
The Academic Support Center provides students with strategies to improve their understanding of writing, critical thinking, study skills, and course content areas. Tutors encourage students to become actively involved in the learning process. ASC staff are available to collaborate with instructors on specific activities to complement or supplement classroom instruction.
All services are free to currently enrolled students.
The Academic Support Center offers individual and facilitated small-group tutoring free of charge to current Manchester Community College students, in courses they are presently taking.
The Writing Center is a place to write. Tutors are available on a walk-in basis to assist students while they are engaged in the writing process.
Walk-In Math Tutoring
Walk-In Math Tutoring is an alternative to an individual appointment with a Math tutor. Walk-in hours are available for students to work independently or in small groups. Tutors are available during designated times to answer questions or assist students.
eTutoring is available online to Manchester Community College students in Writing, Mathematics, Accounting, Biology, Chemistry, and Information Literacy & Research Methods
ESL Conversation Lab
Faculty and tutors lead an open discussion designed for students wishing to engage in dialog for the purpose of strengthening their English comprehension and verbal skills.
Calculator Loan Program
The ASC has calculators available for loan to students. Students may borrow a graphing calculator if their course requires it. The calculator must be returned at the end of the semester. Calculators are limited in quantity and loaned on a first come first serve basis.
Computer Mini Lab
The Computer Mini Lab is located inside the ASC. Eight computers are available for students who wish to enhance their technology skills. Tutors are available by appointment to answer questions or provide guidance.
