Learning Center Tutoring

 

The Learning Center (LC) offers free drop-in tutoring and academic assistance to GC students. The LC is a friendly and stress free environment to study and complete work. 

Peer Assisted Study Sessions

 

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) take place before major tests in courses that do not have SI support.  These sessions are led by students who tutor in the Learning Center. 

Undergraduate Learning Assistants

  Undergraduate Learning Assistants (ULAs) are tutors who work in our Math Lab Emporium to support students enrolled in College Algebra and Math Modeling.
