Promoting Tutor Use

The Academic Support Center relies on faculty to:

  • recommend qualified consultants
  • announce our services to classes
  • enable the “tutoring” link in Blackboard
  • bring classes to our center for tours
  • arrange for our staff to visit classes

Hearing about the Academic Support Center from an instructor encourages students to explore the resources available to them. Here is our official syllabus statement:

Grow your skills! Learning assistance is available for students in a variety of disciplines and may be accessed in different ways.

  • Walk-in and face-to-face appointment assistance with math, writing, and select other subjects is available by visiting LaChance Library (Gardner campus) Monday through Friday 9am-2pm, or Room 123 (Leominster campus) Monday through Thursday from 1-4pm.
  • Online appointments are available by emailing the Academic Support Center at asc@mwcc.mass.edu at least 48 hours prior to your needed appointment. Not every subject is covered on all days at all times, so the more advance notice you provide, the better.
  • Online support is also available through our third-party service ThinkingStorm. Please visit your Blackboard site for access to this service.

Questions about service options or student employment inquiries may be directed to asc@mwcc.mass.edu or 978-630-9333. Please also visit the Academic Support Center.
