When students on the OCC campus need help with their coursework they go to the Learning Center. That’s where they find over 100 tutors who are available there to help achieve success in the classroom.
The Learning Center’s embedded tutoring program was recognized recently by the League for Innovation in the Community Colleges. Kathy D’Aprix, the Learning Center’s Associate Vice President of Academic Support Services, attended the League for Innovations national conference in March and shared OCC’s success story with attendees.
The embedded tutoring program puts tutors in classrooms so they understand how teachers are presenting the coursework. Those tutors are in a better position to help when students come to them seeking assistance. Embedded tutors are strategically placed in some of the College’s most demanding classes.
The Learning Center and the services it provides are available to anyone taking an OCC class whether it is on the main campus, through OCC at Liverpool, online or in high school The Learning Center is located in the Gordon Student Center in room G202 and is open seven days a week. You can contact the Learning Center by phone at (315) 498-2103 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Learning Center and the services provided there are the subject of our monthly podcast, “Higher Ed News You Can Use From Onondaga Community College. You can listen to it here!
