  • Who can use the Sage Learning Center (SLC)?

    You must be registered in an MCC credit course and registered in the class for which you wish to receive tutoring.

    • The subjects we tutor are accounting, chemistry, math, physics, Spanish, and writing.
    • Individual subject times vary.
  • Is writing and math tutoring for English and math classes only?
    • Our writing tutors will assist you with any written assignments (outlines, essays, speeches, Power Points, etc.) for any course. We will also assist registered students with resumes, cover letters, and college application essays.
    • Our math tutors will assist only students registered in MCC math courses. This does not include business math.
    • However, our chemistry and physics tutors will help students who are registered in those courses with math-related questions.
  • Can SLC tutors help me with quizzes, tests, and preparing for placement tests?

    Absolutely not. Helping someone would defeat the purpose of the quizzes and tests. Placement test are taken in the Testing Center in A245.
