Students should not come to the tutoring lab when they are scheduled to be in class.

The ALC is closed on holidays and student breaks. Please refer to the college calendar for exact dates.

 

You are eligible to use a tutoring lab if you are enrolled in an A-B Tech course. We do ask that you sign into the labs upon arrival for our record keeping.

All labs are drop-in open labs (no appointments). We will work with you as soon as we can after you have indicated that you are ready with your questions. We frequently work with more than one student at a time, and you will be expected to do some independent work to demonstrate understanding while we address another student’s question.

We will tutor you using skills exercises designated by your instructor or our own reference materials. We will answer questions about the material (such as a graded test) which has already been checked by your instructor.

We will not work on or provide answers for your homework or graded coursework. Tutors will help you learn the skills necessary to complete your coursework successfully on your own.

Call (828) 398-7228 for more information.

 

The Math and Science labs are for tutoring only and is not a quiet study hall. If you need a quiet place to complete homework assignments, the library or an empty classroom is available.
