The Tutorial and Academic Success Center (TASC) staff is excited about helping students to succeed in the core classes offered at Pitt Community College. TASC is a free service for all students registered for traditional, internet, evening, and weekend classes at PCC. Individual and group sessions with academically qualified peer tutors and professional tutors are offered to provide academic support. The service is designed to increase the probability of academic success for the students who use it. Tutoring is not an emergency preparation for exams, nor is it a substitute for regular class attendance. The primary goal of tutoring is to assist students in becoming independent and confident learners.
The mission of TASC is to provide quality tutoring services to help students be successful.
Primary location for tutoring is in the Leslie Building, Room 146.
Operating Hours: Fall and Spring Semesters
