Vice President, Division of Student Engagement
Under the umbrella of Student Engagement, the Academic Success Center (ASC) at Guttman Community College provides students opportunities to develop strong academic skills to promote success and become self-motivated learners. Through collaborative efforts with academic affairs and faculty, the ASC enhances, promotes, and develops tutoring and academic success programming.
We are committed to creating a supportive, inclusive, student-centered learning environment, which stimulates critical thinking and productive collaborative learning. Our knowledgeable and skilled tutors work alongside students to develop skills and strategies that students need to succeed in the classroom and beyond.
The ASC offers Guttman students free programs and services designed to maximize student involvement in their learning and development. Our staff and trained tutors work collaboratively with students to create options for fostering academic and personal success.
Academic Success Center services include:
eTerns are trained to support students in using academic technology, an integral component of Guttman’s support system for students. eTerns are available to answer questions for the following programs:
- Starfish Navigation
Students can access eTern services through the “Services” tab on Starfish, using any computer on or off-campus.
eTutoring is free, 24-hour, online academic support for students. The service is staffed by professional educators who work with students either synchronously – through chat and question/answer forums- or asynchronously through writing submissions.
Live, online tutoring sessions are offered in various subjects, including Math, Biology, Chemistry, Statistics, Research Methods, and Information Literacy.
Tutors meet one-on-one with students to work together on specific assignments. Tutors tailor each session to the needs of the individual student and the requirements of the assignment.
Students can make appointments through the “Services” tab on Starfish.
Supplementary Instruction (SI) Groups are tutor-facilitated, group review sessions that meet regularly (1-2 times a week). Before the semester begins, tutors (SI Leaders) undergo extensive planning, pedagogy, and team-building training. During the semester, SI Leaders attend all classes for their course and submit plans for their group sessions to the Area Coordinator of Academic Support. Student participation in SI Groups is anonymous and voluntary.
