WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM AUGUST 11-17, 2021 UCW 15 e Student Learning Center at Fayetteville Technical Community College is a source of positive encouragement and support for all current and future FTCC students. Students who visit the SLC find a place to ask questions and receive assistance without feeling embar- rassed or inadequate. Whether a recent high school graduate or one who hasn't been in class for twenty years, students are welcomed and made to feel com- fortable at the SLC. Staff encourage indepen- dent learning and provide students with tutor- ing and supplemental instruction to deepen their comprehension of key concepts. At the SLC, there are 10 qualified instructors ready to support students as they pursue aca- demics. Instructors in the SLC work to bridge the gap between learning and understanding. Each instructor has a higher education degree and has worked closely with adult learners for many years. SLC staff facilitate learning in the areas of English, math, science, Spanish and much more. e staff is invested in student success and constantly encourages students to not give up on achieving their academic goals. Students learn differently, and the SLC staff understands the challenges students face each semester. In fact, SLC staff members encour- age students to visit the SLC as soon as they have a question or feel assistance is needed, rather than delaying. Students are provided a welcoming atmosphere with comfortable seating, computers, laptops and group instruc- tion rooms. Additionally, the SLC has mobile whiteboards and whiteboard tables to promote interactive learning. Students can also use the SLC as a place for study between or after classes.
