  • Tutoring is a free service to our students. Our tutors have knowledge in specific subjects and will act as a learning resource for you. They will help you review and study what you've learned in class. One-to-one and group tutoring is available in selected subjects.

    We are also seeking students who would like to become tutors. If you have an above average grade in a specific course and would like to help others learn, then you may qualify. Our tutors are paid and set their own hours with individual students or study groups.

    Distance Tutoring

    Tutoring and Writing Coach assistance are available through distance tutoring for online students or students unable to travel to a campus. These services are available every term – spring, summer, and fall. Students and tutors will work together to determine the best way to conduct these tutoring services, whether it be through email and/or telephone correspondence, or WebEx meetings. Please contact any Academic Success Center to inquire about distance tutoring.

    What is the Writing Center? 

    The Writing Center offers free, one-on-one assistance to Central Community College students as they strive to improve their writing skills. We provide CCC student writers with a welcoming, inviting, collaborative and supportive atmosphere in which they can develop their skills and make informed decisions about their writing. We promote writing excellence and success of students in both their academic and future careers. The Writing Center also offers free, one-on-one collaboration to Central Community College faculty and staff as they create assignments for their courses, write for publication, update their resumes and CVs, etc.

    How do I use the Writing Center?

    Students are encouraged to schedule appointments ahead of time. We accept drop-ins, but a Writing Coach might not be immediately available. Please contact the Academic Success Center Coordinator for more information or for assistance in scheduling an appointment. For further questions, contact Jim Eads (402) 460-2146. 

    Supplemental Instruction is offered in courses that are historically difficult for students.  In this effort, a former student, who excelled in the area, attends the class and then offers additional teaching sessions to students.  These sessions are held at times that accommodate student schedules like weekends, evenings, etc.  Currently, SI sessions are offered for students enrolled in College Algebra.

    If a student has an accommodation letter through Disability Services, the student can utilize the Academic Success Center for testing accommodations. The student needs to inform their instructor and make an appointment with the ASC staff before testing.
