Academic Support Center

We’re Here to Help You Succeed

If you’re struggling with your class work, the tutors at College of The Albemarle’s (COA) ASC can help with a variety of subjects. The ASC is a free service offered to all current COA students.

Individual Tutoring

Submit the Tutor Request Form

Students can request to meet with a tutor, one-on-one, generally for an hour-long session, two to three times per week. Students should fill out the tutor request form located in myCourses under the ASC class to request a tutor. We will then contact you via email to set up a schedule.

Math and Writing Centers

Students can also take advantage of our walk-in services for math and writing. No tutor request is needed. This semester services will be offered in-person and virtually at COA – Elizabeth City, and virtually for all other campuses. Updated hours for the semester can be found in the ASC class under myCourses.

Tutor.com

Tutor.com is the college’s online tutoring provider. These services are available 24/7 and cover a wide variety of subjects. A link to access Tutor.com is accessible in each myCourses class.

Workshops

Throughout the semester several workshops will be offered through the ASC. Students can take advantage of various writing and academic skills workshops aimed at improving their academic success. Check the ASC myCourses class for schedules.

Additional Resources

There are a number of online resources available if you can’t make it to the ASC.

COA’s Library

COA’s library and learning services provide a wealth of resources to help with writing and general research.

Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL Purdue)

The OWL Purdue offers access to free the Modern Language Association (MLA), American Psychological Association (APA) and Chicago style guides, as well as easy-to-follow style examples to help you with writing assignments.
