The Science Center has tutoring to fit your needs...schedules for study groups & walk-in times are posted weekly outside of your science lecture and lab rooms, and are emailed to you via SCC email.

Individual appointments are set-up by contacting Elaine Hardwick (professional staff tutor) in the Science Center, C-140.

The Science Center has many of the anatomy models  if you need  to review before your lab quiz or lab can stop by anytime to utilize our many models whether a study group is scheduled to meet or not! Cannot find the model you want to review? Speak to Elaine about the model you need from the C-121 lab.

The Science Center space can also be used for study space...the facility provides a quiet study space for individuals or small groups...there is plenty of table space to spread out book, notes, handouts. There is also a wall-sized whiteboard to draw out pictures, write equations, etc. Stop by and check us out!

Also, check out the Science Center D2L site (listed as one of your courses on D2L) for additional materials for study, such as handouts, labeling diagrams, animations, and more.

Study Groups

Photo of study groupStudy groups are held on both campuses and can also be set up online in the “SCC tutors on Zoom” online tutoring room. Research has shown that students that participate in study groups often receive higher grades than those who do not participate. Students learn to be more confident about their science courses, understand processes, comprehend data, and utilize study skills/tips they may not have known about prior to joining a study group.
