The Academic Skills Center (ASC) offers students the opportunity to strengthen their academic skills and improve their rate of success in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The Center is open six days a week--Monday through Friday--evenings as well as Saturdays. (Please check for specific hours here.) Students are encouraged to visit often and early in order to take advantage of the services that we offer.
The AcademicSkillsCenter provides a variety of services. Students in the reading classes come to the ASC each week to work on a variety of assignments designed to supplement their classroom activities and to improve comprehension of college-level texts and materials. Students taking English as a Second Language in both credit and non-credit programs also spend time working in the ASC. They work on software programs that let them practice grammatical concepts and also use audio materials to help build listening skills. The Academic Skills Center also serves as an alternate testing location for students with testing accommodations.
FREE 45 minute one-on-one tutoring sessions and/or small group tutoring sessions are available in most subject areas. Students may make appointments in advance or use the ASC tutoring services on a walk-in basis. (We recommend making appointments since the schedule fills up quickly!)
Professional Assistants and tutors who work at the AcademicSkillsCenter include college faculty and professionals in their respective fields.
All the services provided by the AcademicSkillsCenter are available in one central location. Please visit us in the Montaukett Learning Resource Center, Room 224 or call us at 548-2594.
It is College and Department Policy to require all students to have an ID card present at all times when using the labs.
