The QCC Tutoring Centers, located on the second floor of the Harrington Learning Center (HLC), provide free tutoring for currently enrolled QCC students. The goal of the Centers is to help students improve their course content knowledge and study skills by providing tutoring as a supplement to classroom and online learning. QCC Tutoring Centers include the Writing Center, the Blackboard Tutoring Center, and the General Academic Areas (GAA). Online tutoring is available through Smarthinking, which can be accessed through students' Blackboard courses. Math Tutoring is also offered at the Southbridge and Downtown Campuses. The Math Center schedule for the 2017 spring semester will begin on January 18.
The Math Center is a welcoming and supportive place with tutoring and resources for QCC students. Students taking a range of math and related courses can get assistance with homework and work with tutors to develop their understanding of math and strengthen their study skills. Students can also participate in group study with their peers. Tutoring is drop-in and is provided on an individual and small group basis. Please bring your syllabus and course material when you visit. Tutors can assist with homework problems and examples from QCC math course textbooks and e-books, and similar homework examples from the course LMS, such as MyMathLab, MyStatLab, and Connect.
The Math Center has all of the current Math Department course textbooks and student/instructor solutions manuals to use while in the Center. Additional resources include desktop and laptop computers, tablets, reference material, helpful index cards, a math lending library of books, and placement test review material for self-study. Computers can be used for math coursework such as MyMathLab, MyStatLab, Connect, Maple, and MATLAB. Please see links on the right side of this website for math and study skills videos.
Math, Study Skills, and Technology Workshops
The Math Center offers free workshops on a variety of topics important to successful college math and study skills. These workshops are included in the Tutoring Centers’ Steps to Success Workshop Series during the fall semester. The Tech for Success Workshops, to assist students with navigating technology for their online, blended, and web-enhanced QCC courses, will be offered in the Blackboard Tutoring Center (222 HLC) starting in August.
