How can the Academic Learning Center (ALC) help me?
The Academic Learning Center provides *free tutoring* to all registered BRCC students. We offer tutoring in the areas of Math, Science, and Languages. Our writing tutors can assist you with writing across all subject areas and no matter what stage of the writing process you're at.
During the pandemic you may take advantage of virtual drop-in tutoring by accessing our "ALC Online Tutoring & Resources" course in CANVAS. Once you're in the course you'll also have access to tutor availability and schedules. In the near future you'll have the ability to schedule appointments but currently tutoring is available on a drop in basis.
Alternatively you may access SMARTHINKING online tutoring (24/7) via any course in Canvas.
The ALC staff can guide you should you want to set up virtual study groups. You can host these study groups in the ALC's zoom session so that you have access to a tutor. Alternatively, you may also use SMARTHINKING to set up virtual study groups. Guidance on these is also available in the ALC.
Participate in hands-on workshops on various math, writing, and study skills topics which will now be offered virtually. Announcements for these workshops will be made on CANVAS.
