The Office of Student Success provides a variety of programs to enhance student learning in order to achieve educational success. They include the following:
Tutoring is available each semester to help students improve their academic performance in the course in which they are being tutored. Students can participate in the following tutoring programs:
- Open Lab Tutoring: Available to students in all levels of mathematics, English, chemistry, biological sciences and computer literacy.
- Supplemental Instruction: Provides supplemental instruction and tutoring in traditionally difficult courses like Math, English, History, and Biology, as well as some technical courses. Supplemental instruction tutors work closely with instructors and students to provide small group instruction that supplements actual classroom material.
- Computer-based tutoring: Available in English, math, biology and social sciences. The computer-based tutoring utilizes software to help students practice English and math skills and review biology and social science materials. The software is textbook compatible and provides students with practice/review test questions.
TSTC faculty and staff volunteer to mentor students for success in their program of study. Any student can have a mentor. The goal of the program is to provide students with a support person to encourage student persistence and success while at TSTC.
