Tutoring Center: The Academic Link

The Academic Link, a nationally recognized tutoring and academic assistance center, offers free tutoring in most courses to all enrolled students. This student oriented center, located in Knott Hall 201, "links" students to a wide array of support services and innovative programs to help students achieve academic success and attain their goals. The Link's mission is to provide services and resources to students, faculty, and staff which will enhance student satisfaction, strengthen academic performance, and improve retention.

Students work with dedicated peer and faculty tutors as a team to learn effective study strategies, increase under-standing of course content, and become independent learners. Students needing help in a class or interested in raising their grade from a "B" to an "A" are encouraged to stop by to learn about the services, to use the computers, or to study in the learning environment of The Link. Test proctoring services, for which the faculty member and student must make arrangements with The Link in advance, are available for students with documented reasons and are offered by appointment only.

The Academic Link is nationally certified by the College Reading and Learning Association. The Link staff can be reached at 443-334-2285 or http://web.vjc.edu/academic-link.
