Academic Services Center
The Academic Services Center (ASC) provides convenient "one stop shopping" for tutoring for all Eastern students and advising services for full-time students. Advising for part-time students is available in person and by phone through the School of Continuing Education located in Shafer Hall.
Located on the ground floor of the j. Eugene Smith Library, the ASC is open from 9-9 Monday-Thursday, 9-5 on Friday, and 2-9 on Sunday. Within the ASC, tutoring services are in rooms 108 and 109, with separate units for math tutoring (the Mathematics Achievement Center) and writing tutoring (the Writing Center). All other subjects are covered by the general Tutoring Services. The Advising Center is across the hall in room 109.
Tutoring is provided by a combination of professional staff and peer tutors, who are recommended by the faculty and specially trained as tutors. The Math Achievement Center offers tutoring on a drop-in basis; no appointments are needed. The Writing Center also offers drop-in tutoring but appointments may be made online at www.rich37.com/easternct/
General Tutoring services are best accessed by appointment, as not every subject has a tutor available during the hours that the ASC is open. To see the tutor schedule visit www.easternct.edu/asc/tutoringcenter/schedule.html. Students can sign up for 30-minute one-on-one tutoring by making an appointment at www.rich75.com/easternct/
The ASC is a friendly and inviting space for students, where food and beverages are allowed, and computers are available. Many students use the ASC as a homework space, with help available if needed. Some students form study groups and meet in the ASC. All students are welcome and encouraged to use the ASC.
