Small paragraph explaining / describing differences between "Classes", "Tutoring", and "Connection Sessions".
Connection Sessions provide students with the opportunity to enhance their skills through instructor-led small group sessions. These sessions are conducted on a variety of topics which encourage students to build on their knowledge at their own pace. Connection sessions are also an option for students who enroll in college mid-semester and are unable to get into regular courses. Students are encouraged to attend connection sessions and build their skills which will assist them to perform better when they are able enroll in regular courses.
In order to make use of the services provided by Academic Connections, students must be enrolled at LATTC and possess a current LATTC student ID card. Students using the services in Academic Connections must be enrolled in Academic Connections courses, Tutoring, or Connection Sessions. Hours may vary during holidays and summer and winter sessions.
