The mission of the Teaching and Learning Center is to provide academic reading and writing support to Foothill College students so that they can become self-aware, active, and independent learners. The TLC offers one-to-one skills-based support with Faculty Tutors. In a session, a Faculty Tutor will ask the student questions to help identify strategies to finish his or her work effectively and independently. All students will sign a contract outlining the TLC policies before their first session.Tutors at the TLC DO NOT revise or edit essays; tutors DO help students:
Reading and Writing support is not limited to English or ESL classes; students are encouraged to seek help in any course that requires reading or writing, including History, Anthropology, Dental Hygiene, Biology and more.
The Teaching & Learning Center offers FREE one-on-one tutoring for any Foothill class!
