Learning Center Services & Resources for Students

Student services at JCC

  • Peer tutoring: Peer tutors offer assistance with writing, math, study skills, and a variety of disciplines, including physical and social sciences; business and accounting; and liberal arts courses. Check for tutor availability for a specific course by stopping by the Learning Center or calling us at 716.338.1017 (Jamestown) or 716.376.7516 (Cattaraugus County Campus). Most tutoring is done one-on-one; however, group sessions can be arranged. The AVX Group Study Room may be reserved for group review sessions and class projects.
  • Supplementary materials: The learning center houses many current textbooks, supplementary texts, math and learning strategies videotapes, and reference materials. Handouts on many topics such as time management, text book reading, test taking, note taking, and managing test anxiety are also available.
  • Test analyses: Coordinators will review a recent exam with a student, and together, develop learning strategies focused on a particular course and instructor.
  • Learning environment: Both centers have been designed with a variety of learning environments including quiet study rooms, study carrels, an open room for tutoring, small tables for group learning, and a conference room.
  • Computer lab: A computer lab with Microsoft Office software, internet access, and other course specific software is available for student use. Computer lab assistants are available to answer questions. Review the JCC Acceptable Use Policy.
