The Gaston College Learning Center provides academic assistance for students who are experiencing academic difficulty or otherwise want to improve academic success skills. The Learning Center provides peer tutoring, a computer-assisted learning lab, a quiet study area at no cost to students. The Learning Center also offers video monitored test proctoring for curriculum and developmental courses.

Learning Center

The Learning Center program is staffed by paid tutors who have B’s or better in the courses they tutor, and who are recommended by their instructor or the chair of the department in which the course is taught. Tutors are carefully interviewed by the Learning Center Director and Specialist and undergo an initial training period. In addition to being knowledgeable and well-trained, tutors are also chosen for their sensitivity toward students and for their interest in teaching. Students who are not satisfied with their understanding or performance in a course may use this free service. Help is available in the areas of understanding concepts, problem-solving, and study skills. Tutoring services are available not only for the student who is having difficulty in passing a course, but also for those students who want to improve their skills.

Our goals at the Gaston College Learning Center are to:

  • Help students become more independent, self-confident, proficient learners
  • Provide a safe and proper academic environment for the students of Gaston College
