About the Academic Success Center (ASC)
The Academic Success Center provides tutoring in English/writing, math, science and many more subjects offered by Houston Community College. The Academic Success Center provides FREE tutoring for students who are currently attending HCC.
The Academic Success Center is a drop-in tutoring facility where students can study independently, with a tutor or in small groups. Tutors are available to assist you with any questions that you may have. Tutors will share knowledge and learning strategies with students. Since a tutor’s job is to supplement instruction, students can expect tutors to explain concepts pertaining to problems, ask questions, and make suggestions. Tutors will not complete a student’s work. Please be prepared to supply your student ID or your “W” number for the Accutrack station sign-in, which will record the time of visit and the tutoring subject.
How does "drop-in" tutoring work?
• Bring your work, assignment, notes, and textbook as well as any questions you may have.
• If appropriate, you can be asked to group with others from your class so that you can work together and assist each other whenever possible.
• The tutor will come to each student. Have work to do in case you need to wait, so as to make the most of your time.
How long do tutoring sessions last?
Tutors typically work with students in 20-30 minute increments; however, sessions may vary depending on the number of students waiting to see a tutor. You can visit our centers as often as you would like.
