Learning Assistance


Drop-in Tutor helps SCC student.

Free in-house and online help is provided on a drop-in basis by trained, multi-skilled Tutors who provide assistance with mathematics, sciences, computer, writing in all courses, etc. Also, they help students to schedule appointments for face-to-face and/or online hour-long tutoring sessions. Additionally, these professionals focus on the attainment of successful habits, such as professional communication and study/test-taking skills.


The Jackson and Macon LACs will be closed Wednesday, March 31-Sunday, April 4, for the Easter Break; also, SCC online help will not be available. However, students may use ThinkingStorm's live help and its writing-submission option. Click on the "Tutoring" button at the bottom of any Moodle course, and then click "Start Now" on the right side of the split screen that appears. The LACs will reopen at 8 a.m., Monday, April 5. Also, we will be open on Advising Day (April 6).
