Welcome to the Academic Resource Centers

Your Pathway to Success!

In light of the current situation with COVID-19, the ARC would like to offer you virtual tutoring options for the duration of online classes. 

For Virtual Tutoring, you must have a microphone, internet access, and use Chrome web browser. (You can download Chrome here if you don't have it.).This program does work with your cell phone (though the assistance may be harder to see from a small screen.) 

To log on:

  1. Click on the tutor's name you want to talk to. (Look at their schedule and subjects covered!)
  2. A page will open asking you to download OR to use Teams on the web. YOU MUST USE TEAMS ON THE WEB. DO NOT DOWNLOAD. (If you are using your phone download the app, but enter as a guest.)
  3. Enter your name and click "Join Now". (*You will know you are joining as a guest if you're asked to enter your name.*)
  4. You will go into a wait room and the tutor will let you in when they are available. 

 If you have any questions please contact Rebecca Caskey, ARC Manager.

Mission Statement

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) empowers all State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota students to achieve their personal potential for learning and academic success. The core mission of the ARC is to help students become independent and active learners, thereby achieving academic improvement consistent with their values, interests, and abilities. The ARC serves as a means to help under-prepared students to prepare, prepared students to advance, and advanced students to excel! 

The ARC does this by providing high-quality instructional support that is appropriate to an academically diverse population. This includes One-on-One Tutoring for Math and Science; Writing Conferences; Developmental Skills Labs for Mathematics and Content-specific Workshops and Test Reviews. The ARC also offers a comfortable study atmosphere where students can work on their own, meet with their classmates or professors, and utilize the lab computers, study rooms, and other resources -- all with the support of on demand ARC tutoring.

 

ARC Manager

Rebecca Caskey oversees the ARCs on all three campuses. Please feel free to call or email her with inquiries or concerns. Tutor email addresses can be found on the campus staff pages.
