Tutoring Services Overview

Tutoring Services Overview


An overview of the many tutoring services available to students taking curriculum (credit) classes at A-B Tech


A-B Tech offers a variety of free tutoring services to students taking curriculum (credit) classes. Most of the tutoring labs and offices provide tutoring services to students in a specific subject. If you are having difficulty with your coursework, we recommend first contacting your instructor(s) to discuss strategies for your success.

Math, English, Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering

The Tutoring Center is located on the lower floor of the Don C. Locke Library on the Asheville Campus. The Tutoring Center provides tutoring for students in math, English, chemistry, physics, and engineering. To see a schedule of Tutor Availability by Subject, visit abtech.edu/tc. 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.

French and Spanish

Free tutoring in French and Spanish is available for current A-B Tech students in the Tutoring Center. Tutoring is provided by other students. Typically, students are referred by their instructors. The French and Spanish tutoring schedules change each semester and are based on the student-tutors' individual schedules.

Online Tutoring

Students can receive tutoring online through THINKINGSTORM. To access THINKINGSTORM on our website, go to abtech.edu/tc, then select "THINKINGSTORM (online tutoring)" to the left of the page. Click the THINKINGSTORM link to login. Your THINKINGSTORM login name is your A-B Tech e-mail address, and your password is your A-B Tech Password. Once you log in, you'll find information to begin receiving tutoring through THINKINGSTORM.

Writing Center 

The Writing Center, located in the Don C. Locke Library in room 125 on the Asheville Campus, can help you with planning, organizing, drafting, and revising papers and reports. The Writing Center can also help with resumés, scholarship letters, and other writing projects not associated with a specific class. It's a relaxed one-on-one session with an instructor or peer tutor.

Academic coaching is also available to help students with study habits, organizational skills and time management. To schedule an appointment, please visit the Writing Center Services page and scroll to the "Academic Coaching" section.

Moodle/WebAdvisor Assistance

Moodle assistance can be found by going to abtech.edu/distance and clicking on the Moodle Help? link on the left or by contacting our IT HelpDesk at helpdesk@abtech.edu or (828) 398-7550.

Computer Labs

A-B Tech has a number of computer labs that students can use to work on class assignments.

Transitional Studies

Transitional Studies partners with Literacy Together and A-B Tech Volunteers to connect students with extra help for their studies. For more information, contact your instructor or program coordinator in the Hemlock Building.

Tutoring for High School Students

A-B Tech does not offer tutoring for students who are currently attending high school. Literacy Together of Buncombe County provides tutoring in reading and language arts for high school students. For more information, contact Literacy Together at (828) 254-3442 or info@lit-together.org, or go to lit-together.org.
