Learning Commons


The Learning Commons is the central hub for tutoring at Bristol Community College. The Learning Commons houses both the Writing and the Tutoring and Academic Support Centers. With locations on each campus, the Learning Commons offers you, regardless of ability level, the opportunity to utilize the services and reach your educational goals.

Tutors are available to help you with study skills (note-taking, test preparation, etc.), specific course content questions (for most courses offered), and all types of writing (including non-class-related writing). Our tutors teach you the skills and give you the confidence to become the best student you can be, regardless of your level of learning. Learning Commons services are free to all members of the Bristol community.

Supplemental Instruction


Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an internationally recognized academic assistance program designed to help you navigate historically difficult courses through additional exposure to, and practice with, course material in a group setting. 

SI provides regularly scheduled, weekly review sessions led by an SI leader – a student who has successfully completed the course. The SI leader attends class with you to learn the course material, and meets with the professor to gain additional insight on how to succeed in the course.
