Writing Mentors

Writing Mentors assist other students with their assignments in English on a drop-in basis. Students may work with mentors on any writing assignment they are completing for any course at the college, and at any stage of the writing process, from learning how to generate ideas to mastering proofreading techniques. Mentors work out of an office in the Learning Center, where they have available a computer, writing manuals, and other resources. Students are free to drop-in on a first come, first served basis throughout the semester. See the writing mentor schedule in the Learning Center.

Math Mentors

The Math Mentors are available on a walk-in, first come, first served basis. The sessions last up to 20 minutes but can be longer if there is no one waiting. The mentors are able to help PC students with the full range of math classes. See the math mentor schedule in the Learning Center.

PASS Leaders

A PASS Leader is a student who has succeeded in a specific course and the instructor has chosen to act as a role model for other students. The PASS Leader holds scheduled bi-weekly or tri-weekly study sessions for small groups of students in his or her course.
