Are you feeling overwhelmed or unprepared?

Do you suffer from math phobia?

Are you experiencing writer's block?

Do you need some good help with an assignment?

You have company!
Fifty to seventy-five percent of all college students need extra preparation or help with assignments and papers.

 

The Learning Center (LC) offers assistance to students by providing a congenial environment for learning how to think and write, chiefly through one-on-one instruction or group tutoring in all disciplines.   

As a student at Feather River College, you can bring in your rough draft research papers, and a LC staff member will offer suggestions for improving your writing by pointing out weak areas and explaining the corrections, so that eventually you can become your own editor.  Remember, to be a good writer, you must actually write, learning the processes involved in successive stages from original draft to completed work.

Available to students:
Dictionaries and thesauruses
Textbooks for additional topic information
Writing manuals

Handouts in time management, note taking, and exam preparation
