Student Testimonials

Fabiana OliveiraFabiana Oliveira:  English is not my first language, so I needed lots of help understanding how to communicate in English on an academic level. Tutoring made a great difference in my performance and confidence.

Diedad F. Diaz Iervasi

Diedad F. Diaz Iervasi: I am always looking for help to reach my goals. I am still a frequent visitor of the tutoring center because all tutors are extremely helpful. I am thankful to the tutoring staff. My confidence in my own capabilities is stronger each day. In every class, when I see a classmate in trouble with the course, I personally recommend this service. I highly recommend it to all GTCC students.
