    Tutoring Resources:

    Tutoring: The Elizabeth J. Fallon Learning Center offers tutoring for students enrolled in MSC courses in the following categories:

    • math
    • biology
    • American Sign Language
    • courses requiring papers 

    Tutor schedules: Tutor hours vary each semester and are subject to change.  Hours of availability for the current semester are posted outside the tLC and on this web site.

    Rosetta-Stone Language software:  Programs are available for student use in Room C. Students should contact the front desk of the Learning Center (745-9713) to schedule a time to use these programs.

    Computer stations: 

    • Two stations dedicated to online tutoring services at tutor.com/alaska are available for student use. Because MSC tutors have limited hours and some courses do not have tutors, students may receive online tutoring through tutor.com/alaska at two computers in the Learning Center. This tutoring is paid for by the state libraries and is free for Alaskans.
    • Five stations are reserved for students in the process of writing papers for their MSC courses. Students often use these computers in combination with visiting a writing tutor.
    Card swipe sign-in: New to the Learning Center, the card swipe machine streamlines the sign-in procedures. Students may swipe their Wolfcards or type in their student ID numbers.

    Textbooks, videos, and other resources: Students should ask a tutor or the front desk clerk for the use of sample textbooks or training videos. Online and local resources may also be recommended.
