Tutoring and Academic Assistance
BCC offers tutoring, study skills, testing, and computer assistance and access. Its mission is to support students academically during their time at Brunswick Community College and help prepare them for the world beyond. The staff assists students in their understanding and application of course content, enhances self-confidence, and encourages positive attitudes toward learning.
One-on-One Zoom Tutoring Sessions
Writing in all subject areas, math, biology, chemistry, and Spanish tutoring is available during the week by appointment via Zoom with ACE professional tutors. Due to high demand, tutoring must be for a course in which a student is currently registered.
