Feeling stuck? Have unanswered questions about your assignments that cannot wait until class time? Do you just need a quiet place to study? GC’s instructional labs can help you help yourself. Of the many services for student success that the campus offers, the I-Lab, Math Hub and Writing Center are among the most invaluable. Here students can receive the individual attention they need from highly-qualified tutors and consultants to promote self-motivation and understanding.
Located in the Success Center (SC-107 on the Main Campus and SB-121 on the South Campus), the I-Lab is an integrated, individualized instructional lab serving mostly developmental students and faculty. This lab’s small but experienced staff offer mentoring and assistance with word processing software, grammar/editing and formatting according to the MLA Style Manual, among many other services. Staff member and resident MLA formatting expert John Moody explained that while students may seek as much help as necessary in completing their assignments, that his main objective as a tutor is “teaching them how to edit their own papers.” The lab provides an “instructor-based support system for anything related to reading and writing.” This includes free printing for INRW or English coursework, others can print at a nominal fee.
The I-Lab staff includes highly qualified instructors who teach reading and writing skills. They specialize in assisting first-time college students and any other students who wish to improve their writing skills. The staff can help students who are having difficulties with computer technology with regard to the writing process and the use of the MLA forma, required for many student assignments. The staff can also answer most question that beginning students might have on a number of other subjects
