Academic Support Center
Nobody said college would be easy. Learning a new area of study can be a struggle, and sometimes you may need a little help. The Academic Support Center can equip you with the right strategies needed to improve your skills in writing, critical thinking, studying, mathematics, or course content.
The ASC will be open on the following Saturdays from 10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m.:
Walk-In Writing Center, Walk-In Math Tutoring, and (limited) Individual Tutoring appointments are available.
Learning Assistance On Campus and Off
Working with our supportive tutors and staff, you can fully develop personal and academic skills, concepts, and confidence in a friendly, learner-centered environment. Tutoring is available on campus and online.
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
