Tutors helping Pierce College students.

The Academic Resource and Writing Center, more commonly known as the tutoring center, provides drop-in math tutoring, writing consultations, subject-specific tutoring and individually matched appointments.

The tutoring center also is a place for study groups to meet at a scheduled time to work with a tutor.

“If people don’t use the tutoring center they are insane,” Pierce College student Steven James said.

The tutors are paid employees of the school and receive weekly training on how to teach students. The tutors themselves are examples of what can be gained by reaching out for help.

“In my pre-cal class I got a 2.8 (grade point average). After coming here (ARC) and working with my teacher, I got a 3.6 in Calculus I,” Jose Avalos, a current ARC tutor, said.

ARC is open to all students but requires a student ID.

It’s open on Mondays and Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays.

The ARC is in Room 170 in the College Center.
