The Advising and Academic Success Center offers both tutoring and testing services in support of student learning.

 

Tutoring:

 

The AASC operates a Math and Writing Center staffed by qualified technicians to assist students in these subject areas.  Hours are posted each semester, and students can drop in during these designated hours without an appointment (see hours below).  In addition to the Math and Writing Centers, one-to-one tutoring is also available.  Tutors are assigned based on availability.  Any students requesting a tutor for a Math or English course must first spend 10 hours in the Math or Writing Center, respectively, before they will become eligible for a tutor.

 

Study skills assistance is also available.  Please contact the Coordinator of Academic Support by calling 301-387-3741 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to learn more about available services.
