Beacon is American River College's award-winning peer-group tutoring program

A trained tutor who has successfully completed a course works with a small group of students currently enrolled in the same course. The study group meets 2 hours a week outside of class. Students and tutor work together and learn from each other. As a student participating in the Beacon Program, you will automatically be enrolled in Human Services 1000, a no fee, no grade, no credit class.

Ask your instructor if he or she has a Beacon study group for your class. Many instructors also offer incentives, often in the form of extra credit points, for those in a Beacon study group.

If you are interested in becoming a tutor or participating as a student, please come to the Learning Resource Center or call the number below for information.
