12 advice advise advisor 7096The Student Learning Center at Fayetteville Technical Community College offers students the opportunity to be in charge of their own learning. The Center provides students with academic tutoring, assistance and resources to further their comprehension of key concepts in a wealth of subject areas. 

The Center is a source of encouragement and support for FTCC students. Students who visit the SLC find a place where they can ask questions and receive answers without feeling embarrassed. Instructors listen to students and assess their academic needs, working one-on-one to provide meaningful and positive academic experiences.

Instructors work to bridge the gap between learning and understanding. We want students to feel comfortable when entering the SLC. Everyone learns differently, and we understand the struggles that students can face each semester. In fact, we encourage students to come to the Center as soon as they have a question or need assistance, rather than waiting for problems to arise. We provide a welcoming atmosphere with comfortable seating, computers, laptops and group instruction rooms. Additionally, the Center has recently been updated to include mobile whiteboards and mobile whiteboard tables to promote interactive learning. Students can also use the Center for a quiet place to study between or after classes. We have heard some students refer to the Center as their home away from home.

 Twelve instructors in the Center stand ready to help students gain understanding by answering academic questions. Each instructor has a higher education degree and has worked closely with adult learners. 

The primary goals of the SLC staff are to work with students to help them succeed, accomplish educational goals and create bigger and brighter futures. Education makes all the difference in attaining positive change. 

Additional resources are available for students as well, including three specialized labs located in the same general area as the SLC. The math, science, and writing labs offer students the same one-on-one experience they receive in the SLC but within a more personalized setting. The math and writing labs have one instructor, and two instructors serve the science lab. 

In addition to the one-on-one tutoring, the Center provides NetTutor Online Tutoring Service for distance education learners. NetTutor is available 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The tutoring service is available through FTCC student Blackboard accounts. 

Using the SLC is free, and no appointment is necessary. Students simply bring an FTCC student ID, swipe ID at the front kiosk, choose a class for needed assistance and get ready for an amazing learning experience. 

The SLC is located inside the Harry F. Shaw Virtual College Center. Hours of operation are Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-7 p.m., and Friday,
8 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information, contact the SLC at learningcenter@faytechcc.edu or call 910-678-8266. Discover the difference between taking classes and succeeding in classes.
