ARC staff are ready to help you with:
- foreign languages

Students can also use computers in the ARC to do Internet research, access tutorial software, or work on writing assignments.
The ARC is Hiring Tutors:
The ARC will be holding Open Interview Days on April 12th at the Midlothian campus ARC and on April 19th at the Chester campus ARC. We will specifically be interviewing for writing or math/science tutors, both for the normal ARC staff and for the Supplemental Instruction (SI) Tutor positions. If you enjoy helping people and wish to gain experience working in an adacemic environment, please consider applying.
Students who want information about applying should email the ARC (email@example.com).
One on One Tutoring:
While the ARC is always open to tutor students on a walk-in basis, we also provide limited one on one tutoring sessions on Fridays and Saturdays of each week. One on one sessions will last 45 minutes. Students can set up an appointment on the One on One Tutoring Request form for their course and preferred time slot(s). Booking an appointment will depend upon availability and demand. Each week we will let students know via email what available times we have for their one on one session, which will be scheduled for the subsequent week. Students can request up to 4 appointments per class per semester.
If you have any questions, please fill out the contact form below with your name, student email, and query.
Online tutoring is available for STEM-H courses through NetTutor, which you can access through your course(s) on Blackboard. NetTutor offers both live one-on-one online tutoring, as well as asynchronous or Q and A tutoring, where students can leave a question and receive feedback within 24 hours.
For writing, students unable to come into the Writing Center and work in person may submit writing assignments electronically during business hours by filling out the following form: Writing Center Online Submission Form. All writing submissions to the ARC will maintain a 36 business hour turnaround time: if you submit a paper on Monday at 9am, the latest you would get it back would be Friday at 9am. Saturdays are not considered business hours, so we will not begin working on/send back submissions on Saturdays.
The Writing Center helps students become stronger, more independent writers. Students can work with our tutors face-to-face in the ARC or online. We welcome assignments at any stage of the writing process, for any kind of writing project. For additional information about the Writing Center or the resources we offer, please click the following link: https://jtcc.libguides.com/writing-center.
The tutors in the Math Center are available to help students in all levels of math, science, engineering, accounting, and most other STEM-H classes. We offer a quiet space to independently work on homework, receive individual help on assignments or preparing for a test, and/or have group study sessions. The tutors can also assist with standardized test preparation, including the VPT, TEAS, and ASVAB.
Individual and Small eTandem Sessions at The ARC - Spanish/English FALL 2018
What is etandem?
eTandem is a conversation with native speakers of the target language in which students help each other learn the language of their tandem partner.
Students chat for 25-30 minutes in one language and then they chat for 25-30 minutes in the other language. eTandem allows students of Spanish to learn more vocabulary and culture from their peers in Latin America.
Participants may come to the ARC or connect from home or any place with a good internet connection. We will use Zoom (Zoom.us ID: 934 900 6015)
