Tutoring Services

The Student Success Center is a free tutoring program offered to all UACCB students.  Appointments or referrals are not necessary to receive tutoring.  Tutoring is provided for all subjects that are offered by UACCB.

The main service provided by the Student Success Center is tutoring on the individual level.

To be a more successful student, seek help before falling behind in a course.

Student tutors are chosen for their expertise in selected fields of study and are hired to fill work study positions. Students who hold expertise in a certain field of study are encouraged to apply to become tutors. Contact Deanna Tillery at deanna.tillery@uaccb.edu if interested in becoming a peer tutor.

If you need help improving your study skills, here are several links to some helpful information:


Printed Materials

The Student Success Center can supply a student with pamphlets and printouts which detail ways to build self-esteem, identify and learn to use one’s learning style and various other self-help works including test anxiety; Hand-outs are also available for math formulas and rules, grammar rules, and preparing an introduction, thesis statement, and conclusion.


Anatomy and Physiology, Biology, and nursing program students have found our human anatomical models to be helpful in their studies.  We have a human torso complete with the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, and reproduction system.  We also have a brain, heart, ear, nerve synapse, eyeball, and skeletal system. A microscope is available upon request complete with various slides.
