TUTORING & WRITING CENTER SERVICES
The Library Learning Commons is the central hub for tutoring at Bristol Community College. The Library Learning Commons houses both the Writing Center and the Tutoring and Academic Support Centers (TASC). With locations in the libraries on each campus, through online and in-person appointments, the Library Learning Commons Tutoring and the Writing Center are here to help you achieve your educational goals, whether you’re here for just a few classes or to get a degree.
Tutors are available to help you with study skills (note-taking, test preparation, etc.), specific course content questions (for most courses offered), and all types of writing (including non-class-related writing). Our tutors teach you the skills and give you the confidence to become the best student you can be, regardless of your level of learning.
Our academic support is for everyone. If you’re having trouble with one or more assignments, talk to us. If you’ve been doing well but want to work towards something even better, talk to us. If you’re anywhere in between, talk to us.
