Library & Tutoring
How can I start working with a tutor?
Academic Support Center
Receive in-person and/or virtual tutoring at no cost. In-person tutoring is available on a walk-in basis at any of our six ASC locations. Virtual tutoring can be accessed via live chat. In addition to tutoring, we offer many other services and resources to help you succeed.
Schedule up to 3 appointments a week for assistance with any writing and communication project. Appointments last up to 45-minutes and can focus on any stage of the writing process. We strive to create a supportive learning environment that will foster student success and provide the services and resources needed both on campus and online.
Our helpful librarians can show you how to locate and access resources through the library website, and they can also demonstrate how to effectively use the Internet to gather reliable information for better research papers. In addition to a wide variety of print resources, the library provides access to over 175,000 e-books, 30,000+ streaming videos, and millions of full-text scholarly and peer-reviewed articles. Please stop by the Daytona or DeLand Library or contact a librarian via phone, email, or chat.
