Tutoring Services at the Academic Success Center
All of us at Richmond Community College want our students to succeed, and we’re committed to inspiring and allowing them to do so. With this in mind, we offer free tutoring services to any student who is interested in being tutored. At our Academic Success Center you will be provided with personal, one-on-one tutoring or small group sessions. Reinforcement and skill drill are also available in the form of computer, written and video tutorials.
Have you taken the Accuplacer placement test once and are not happy with your score? Do you need a little help to increase your math or reading comprehension score? Our Academic Success Center can help you increase your scores!. Contact us today to take advantage of these FREE tutoring services before classes begin. Tutoring services are available at both our main campus in Hamlet or the Honeycutt Center in Laurinburg.
We encourage faculty members to send students to our Academic Success Center in the J. Richard Conder Learning Resources Center (LRC) for tutoring, skill labs or remedial work. Faculty are asked to complete referral cards for students to be tutored, and to identify specific academic weaknesses, as well as make suggestions for tutorial materials and/or techniques. Students will be assigned a tutor only when a referral card has been received by an Academic Success Coordinator. See Referral Form below.
