learning skills classes

Learning Skills Language Arts and Mathematics provide courses to support and foster student success through self-paced computer assisted instruction with the oversight of the instructor.   Successful students have used Learning Skills as a supplement to their English, ESL & Math classes, as a refresher for self improvement if they have been away from school for a period of time, or as a requirement for job related skills training.  Courses are available in Grammar Review, Vocabulary, Spelling, ESL, Reading Comprehension, Essay Writing, Speed Reading, Math Fundamentals and Algebra, Political Science, and Chemistry.

All Learning Skills courses are taught online TBA (To Be Arranged) so you can access the course anywhere you can get Internet access (24/7) and complete the course requirements. These classes are NDA (non degree applicable). Some classes are graded as CR/NC (credit/no credit). Other classes are taught as zero unit courses. By consulting with one of the instructors, a course of study can be tailored for your own individual needs!
