Tutoring session with male and female students

At AACC, we are committed to your success, which is why we offer a wealth of tutoring and related support services for you. We encourage you to take advantage of the full-time tutoring faculty, adjuncts, peer tutors, study groups, computer labs and online support at your disposal that can help you master the basics as well as increasingly complex coursework.

If you need some quiet space to concentrate, or if you prefer to work with a group, there are rooms in the library and throughout the Arnold campus to team up with classmates. While some tutoring options offer general guidance, others are intended for specific areas of study, such as math, English, reading and science. Don’t forget to meet with your instructor on a regular basis, connect with an advisor and/or take advantage of one of our many tutoring options.

Bottom line, if you want a head start in your studies or if you are struggling in a specific course, the sooner you tap into these resources, the faster we can get you back on track and help you stay there.
