Learning Resources Center / Tutoring

Mission Statement

The mission of the Jerry Adams Learning Resources Center at Berkeley City College is to ensure student success in academic and career/technical endeavors, through individual and/or group tutoring. We address students’ academic needs in basic skills, including English, ESL, and math, and in other program areas, as well as their ability to work effectively in a college environment and their personal development as it relates to academic success. We endeavor to challenge and support our students, working together to motivate and empower them, while responding to their individual needs.
