Individual Reading and Study Skills Assistance

During certain hours each semester a JCCC Reading instructor will be available in the Academic Achievement Center specifically to provide students with one-on-one instruction in reading and study skills.

No appointment is necessary to meet with a reading and learning specialist. Current schedules are available in the AAC (OCB 304) and from reading department faculty.
