Other Tutoring Services

ALC Location and Hours

The ALC tutoring and testing labs are located in the Ferguson Building (#7 on our campus map). Ferguson is across from the Don C. Locke Library and adjacent to the Beech Tree Deck. ALC hours of operation are posted on our main website.

When classes are closed for activity day schedule, inclement weather, holidays, and student breaks, these labs are also closed. Be sure to refer to the College calendar for exact dates.

Remember that the ALC shouldn't be used as a "study hall." If you need a quiet place to complete homework, the library or an empty classroom would be a better option than the ALC.

Tutor Availability by Subject

To see a schedule of Tutor Availability by Subject, go to abtech.edu, click "Student Resources" at the top right, then select "Academic Learning Center". Select "Hours and Contact Info" on the left. This will give you the hours when tutors are available in math (through calculus), chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, engineering, and statistics.
