Dual Credit Students

Tutoring and Academic Coaching

 

Dual credit students who need assistance understanding course content or developing study skills can use the tutoring services available at the LSC-Montgomery and LSC-Conroe Center campus locations. Both locations offer a wide range of academic support services. Students who are unable to visit in-person can utilize online tutoring services for subject tutoring, writing consultations, and academic coaching. The information below will assist you in accessing both in-person and online tutoring and academic coaching services.

Understanding Your Course Content

Individual and group-based learning assistance is available for a broad selection of courses, including accounting, A&P, biology, chemistry, computing, English, ESOL, geology, languages, math, and physics. Dual credit students can access these services online or in-person.

Online Tutoring

Lone Star College System, in partnership with Brainfuse/TutorMatch, offers all enrolled students unlimited pre-scheduled online tutoring services for math, sciences, accounting, computer technology, and writing. Dual credit students will need to use their LSC email credentials to access these services. For more information about how to access online tutoring, visit Online Tutoring

In-Person Tutoring

In addition to online tutoring, the LSC-Montgomery Tutoring And Research (STAR) Center offers in-person tutoring, academic coaching, and study space, including computer stations and printing. For more information on the STAR Center or to make an appointment, visit STAR Center Visit Us.

Improving Your Writing and Citations

Our writing tutors are available to help you with any project at any stage of the writing process with an emphasis on structure, word choice, content, and sentence fluency. We support writing across all disciplines and projects beyond the standard essay or research paper. Our goal is to provide confidential and convenient academic support for all Lone Star College students requesting support.

Our tutors will...

  • encourage you to revise your paper critically,
  • provide you with tips and techniques for brainstorming, finding a thesis, organizing, adding support, citing correctly, and other writing-related issues,
  • and ultimately helping you to become a better writer.

Writing tutoring is available to dual credit students online and in-person. For more information about writing consultations, visit Writing Resources.

Finding Resources to Learn at Your Own Pace

Self-study resources allow you to learn at your own pace, focusing on areas you are most interested in or want to understand better. Available for a variety of subjects, these resources help you discover more about the topics you are studying in your courses and reduce feelings of frustration and anxiety. These resources have been identified and, in some cases, developed by LSC tutoring staff and faculty.

For more information, visit: Self-Study Resources

Building Your Academic Skills

Academic coaching provides support and assistance in improving your academic skills and performance. Coaches can help you mitigate and overcome perceived barriers, identify areas of strength and weakness, devise a personalized plan of action for you, and more. Here are just some of the topics in which a coach can work with you in order for you to become more effective, and more successful in your academic goals going forward: 

  • Time Management
  • Study Planning / Study Skills
  • Note Taking
  • Test Taking 
  • Online Learning
  • Goal Setting
  • Learning Styles
  • Student Stress Management
  • How to Handle Failure 
  • Memorization Techniques

Live Sessions

Live, interactive one-on-one sessions with an academic coach are available by appointment online or in-person. During the session, you'll work with an academic coach to identify barriers to success and develop a plan for overcoming those barriers. For more information on how to make either an in-person or an online coaching session appointment, please visit Academic Coaching page.

 

Pre-Recorded Sessions

The Student Academic Success Skills (or S.A.S.S.) video series are pre-recorded video versions of the live academic skills workshops we offer. Not only do these videos allow you to learn the content at your own pace, but they also offer most of the same handouts (pdf format which you can print out and keep with you) and activity opportunities from our in-person workshops so you can still practice the skills that you are learning.

Each topic is broken down into short easy to watch videos that guide you through the entire workshop presentation at your leisure. For more information on how to access the pre-recorded videos, please visit Academic Skills Video Series.
