About the Academic Success Center
The Academic Success Center provides academic assistance to Bucks students in over twenty different subject areas for credit courses and select Continuing Education courses offered at the College. The Center employs approximately 60 tutors each semester, the majority of whom tutor Math or Writing, Reading, Study Skills, and American English as a Second Language. Our range of tutors, including students, professionals from the community, and faculty, are here to help you, so please feel free to work with different tutors to find the right one or ones for you.
Ongoing Tutor Training
The Center is certified in levels 1, 2, and 3 by the College Reading and Learning Association's International Tutor Training Program. This certification means that all tutors receive both initial and ongoing training in tutor theory and practice, in addition to their training on College and departmental policies. All of our tutors participate in this training to remain current in best practices and to ensure that students receive the highest quality support possible.
The Newtown Center is located on the main floor of the Library in room 210. The UBC Center is located across from the Library on the other side of the Commons, and in LBC, the Center is located behind the circulation desk within the Library.
