Learning Assistance

Here is something to put your mind at ease – Trident Technical College offers free academic help for TTC students, including online students. No need to worry, because help is available! Whether you are an “A” student or are struggling with the basics, The Learning Center tutors can help you achieve your academic goals and be a successful student.

The Learning Center provides an open learning environment that offers assistance to students through tutoring, workshops and various instructional materials. Tutoring options include face-to-face scheduled appointments, small group tutoring, drop-in tutoring and online tutoring. Special emphasis is placed on providing help in mathematics, but assistance may be available in other disciplines based upon tutor availability.

CRLA logoThe Learning Center tutoring program is certified by the College Reading and Learning Association International Tutor Training Program, which establishes professional standards for tutoring programs, including tutor qualifications, training and evaluation.

Mentoring and academic coaching also are available to TTC students.

TIP: Although there are drop-in opportunities where students can walk in and get help, it is best to schedule an appointment several days in advance.

Math Assistance

Students may also visit The Math Center, a collaborative learning center that provides drop-in tutoring assistance for students enrolled in TTC math classes. An appointment is never necessary in The Math Center; just walk in and get tutoring assistance or work on homework in a comfortable, supportive environment. Online tutoring assistance also is available for selected math classes, and small group tutoring sessions for specific curriculum-level math courses are scheduled each term.

TIP: Plan ahead to schedule your math tutoring appointments. The math tutors are in demand, so their schedules get booked quickly.
