Why Tutoring Matters?

The Malcolm X College Academic Support Center (ASC) provides support to all students seeking tutoring to gain a deeper comprehension of course content and enhance their overall educational experience. Tutoring can be utilized to help students set academic goals, plan ahead and become better prepared.        
         
We believe all learning leads to positive personal growth, so in addition to course-related academic skills, our center assists students in building reading, writing, computer and study skills across all disciplines. Our philosophy of personalized one-on-one tutor/student experiences lead to greater student confidence, independence, and improved academic success. Research clearly shows students who engage with tutoring services demonstrate a significant increase in course completion and overall improved classroom achievement.      


Tutoring Services    

 
Tutoring services are available through the Academic Support Center (ASC) to all CCC students who seek assistance in achieving personal and academic success. Tutors are experts in various subjects including all general education subject areas (i.e. English, Math, CIS, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Psychology, etc.), as well as in support of several of the health sciences programs (availability varies by program/term). The ASC also offers tutoring support in placement test preparation, ATI-TEAS test preparation, as well as broad-based English reading and writing assistance.
