Individual, half hour tutoring appointments can be made at the AAC Appointment Desk in Manzanita 18-2 or by calling (209) 588-5088 during regular AAC hours. All tutoring is free of charge to registered Columbia College students.
The AAC employs trained peer tutors who have excelled in the classes they tutor and have been recommended by Columbia College faculty. AAC tutors were once in your place and can help you learn strategies to succeed.
To cancel or reschedule an appointment, please call 588-5088 or visit the AAC in Manzanita 18-2 at least two hours before the appointment.
AAC No-Show Policy: Failure to cancel an appointment at least two hours before the appointment or arriving more than ten minutes late to an appointment is considered a "No-Show." Two No-Shows will result in the loss of tutoring privileges for the semester. Please note: To cancel an 8am appointment and avoid a No-Show, call 588-5088 and leave a message.
For Faculty : To refer a student for peer tutoring in the Academic Achievement Center, please complete the Tutoring Referral Form and present it to the student.
Also, you may send an email blast to all your students stating:
For the purpose of improving your skills and comprehension related to this course, you are directed to attend the Academic Achievement Center (AAC) in Room Manzanita 18-2 to work with a tutor.
The AAC will require you to enroll in a noncredit course (SKLDV– 410 College Skills Enhancement) that will entitle you to receive tutoring in the Center for the entire semester at no cost.
