The Center for Reading & Learning Strategies in Larrison Hall offers academic support for all Brookdale students enrolled in any course who need assistance in applying reading strategies in their coursework.
Students can meet with an Instructional Assistant for a one hour long, one-on-one online appointment with one of our tutors.
Reading Instructional Assistants offer help throughout the semester by explaining strategies to help you:
- Understand your syllabus and get organized for the semester
- Know your textbook
- Make sense of your textbook and articles (highlighting, annotating, creating outlines, etc.)
- Organize the important information
- Prepare for tests and exams
- Suggest tips for studying with peers
The Center for Reading & Learning Strategies also provides weekly assigned lab times as a fundamental component of READ 091 and required appointments to practice strategies for READ 092. In addition, individual appointments are offered for READ 095 students. Throughout the semester, The Center also offers workshops that provide tips for test-taking anxiety and study skills.
Students can schedule appointments on-line through tutortrac.brookdalecc.edu. Select “Reading Center Online” to choose an appointment day and time. A Zoom link will be sent to your email at the time of your appointment.
Please contact Jeanne McCarthy at 732-224-2613 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
