Tutoring (Academic Learning Centers)
The Ruth G. Shaw Academic Learning Center (ALC) is committed to helping you overcome difficulties with academic coursework, promoting your independent learning, and to proactively helping you develop the skills necessary for academic and life-long learning success.
We have moved tutoring sessions to a hybrid format, conducted either online or in-person. Schedule tutoring appointments using Schedulicity (keep reading to learn how). On the day of your tutoring session, your tutor will send an email with both a WebEx link and the tutor's physical campus location, if that tutor is on a campus (giving you the option to attend the session online or face-to-face).
All Academic Learning Center tutors are qualified in a relevant area. Our tutors also complete specialized training in tutoring techniques and participate in continuing education activities.
We offer two tutoring format options:
- tutoring for specific subjects by appointment with our Central Piedmont Academic Learning Center tutors, and
- 24/7 tutoring for a wide variety of subjects with Smarthinking
