CLARKSDALE – Not everything is grasped inside of the classroom. That’s why Coahoma Community College’s Division of Enrollment and Student Services offers continued academic support for students outside of the classroom with its free tutorial lab.

Located on the second floor of the Zee A Barron Student Union, the lab offers free tutoring and academic support services to assist students in achieving personal and academic success.

Tutorial Service Coordinator Patrick Johnson said assistance is available for students in the lab through one-on-one peer tutoring or through the web-based tutoring software Edmentum.

“We encourage students to use these tutoring services to gain a deeper comprehension of course content and to enhance learning development,” Johnson said.

CCC athletes currently also use the lab as a study hall where they can tackle difficult homework problems and review course concepts during assigned periods.

“It’s a great resource for our athletes to come in with their teammates and support one another academically … it helps to build their relationship on and off the field,” Johnson said.

However, the lab is accessible to all students, those who living on and off-campus, from 1 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursdays and 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Fridays.

According to Johnson, students can be referred by an instructor, counselor or other employees of the College, but walk-ins are also welcomed.

“Because of our extended hours, the lab is a great resource for students who may need somewhere quiet to study and perform research after other buildings are closed,” Johnson said.

In addition to the tutoring service, the lab is also a great location for students to perform research and complete homework, with several computers and free printing available.

“We encourage more students to take advantage of this valuable resource available to them to help ensure their academic success,” Johnson said.
