WHAT ARE THE ACADEMIC SUCCESS CENTERS?

The Academic Success Centers (ASC) offer free tutoring in three spaces on campus – the STEM Center, Reading and Writing Center, and Learning Center – and online for courses across the curriculum at Madera Community College. We have the same goal as the students we help: Working toward success in the classroom!

How do we reach this shared ambition? ASC tutoring and its supplementary services enable learning and academic success with both collaborative and independent learning activities. In other words, we not only to work alongside students but strive to give them the skills and confidence to succeed in college on their own.

All ASC employees receive a professional certification through the College Reading and Learning Association upon completing their first semester of training.

No matter what kind of help you need, the Academic Success Centers have a service that can help you thrive as part of MCC’s community of learners.

STEM CENTER

For students of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, the STEM Center offers free drop-in tutoring for all levels of math, from algebra to calculus and statistics, as well as biology, chemistry, and physics.

READING & WRITING CENTER

Whether you need help starting an assignment or reading through a text, want peer feedback on a draft, or have to polish your grammar and citations, the Reading and Writing Center offers free appointments and resources for all student writers. Come write with us!

LEARNING CENTER

The home of MCC’s Extending the Classroom (ETC) initiative, the Learning Center puts tutors in classrooms across the curriculum – from biology and chemistry to history and philosophy -- and offers drop-in tutoring and regularly scheduled tutorial sessions.

ASC WORKSHOPS
