and staff are available to assist students in the use of these
materials. Telecourse materials, conference rooms, copiers and
media production services are also available.
Florida Community College’s learning centers offer friendly,
skilled, individualized student tutoring on a drop-in basis. In
these labs, students may pursue self-paced instruction through
a variety of learning tools including video, audio, computer tutorials
and paper resources. Subjects covered for tutoring at all campus
learning centers include English, math, science, foreign language,
adult studies and business. Students may stop in during day or
evening hours to consult a tutor, use the various learning tools,

center Web page.
In addition, practice tests and learning materials are available
