Student Success Center

BRCC Student Success Center Logo
The Student Success Centers (SSC) provide academic support and tutoring to BRCC students in curriculum and developmental courses through the use of one-on-one instruction, peer and instructor tutoring, computerized instruction, and workshops. A Student Success Center instructor is always available, during Student Success Center open hours, to provide assistance.

 

Services Available

Instructor Tutoring: The Writing Center and Math Lab are located in the HCC Student Success Center and are staffed by curriculum instructors to provide additional instruction outside the classroom. Students can drop by for assistance or be referred by an instructor. Instructor tutoring in other subjects, such as computer information technology, is also offered in the Center. Hours of assistance vary each semester according to instructor schedules. Contact the Center for more information.

 

Peer Tutoring Program: Students who need supplemental instruction in a particular course can receive free tutoring from an instructor-recommended student who excels in the same subject. Tutors are paid by the hour with College funds. Any student interested in receiving tutoring or becoming a tutor can contact the Student Success Center or see an instructor. Peer tutors must have an instructor recommendation to tutor.

 

Remediation: Students needing assistance with developmental courses or with making up a grade of incomplete in developmental reading, English, or math should come to the SSC for assistance.

 

Irlen screenings: Students having difficulties with reading comprehension should contact the Henderson County Campus Student Success Center for a screening. Irlen, also known as Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome, is a visual-perceptual disorder. Irlen is a type of perceptual processing problem that affects the way the brain perceives and processes visual information. Irlen can be the cause of many reading and other academic problems. Because we are born with Irlen, people often do not know they have it. Indications of Irlen include (but are not limited to) reading comprehension difficulties, headaches when reading, light sensitivity, and problems staying focused.  Refer to www.Irlen.com or phone the HCC Student Success Center for more information.


Smarthinking: an online tutoring service, is available free for distance learning and traditional students on both campuses. 

 

Workshops & Refresher Classes – Please check with the Student Success Centers for further information.
