Most teachers lend a helping hand when I didn't understand a subject. There is even a tutoring lab where students and teachers volunteer some of their time to helping others. I believe that in school, you're there to learn and if you stick to that, you'll be fine. Workers in the office are helpful in finding what you need and are patient most of the time but some expect you to do things on your own. While the payments may contain complications, the classes are overall helpful and work with you if you're willing to learn.
Review McDowell Technical Community College
I really enjoy my major. I dislike Science a lot, and I knew I didn't want to get an Associates of Science Degree, so I went with an Associates of Arts Degree instead. I have enjoyed most of my classes. In order to graduate, I had to take at least 1 Science class, so I took Biology, which wasn't too bad. The workload isn't too bad, and it's really easy stuff. All the teachers that I know are more than willing to help students who are struggling with their courses. And tutoring schedules are available where necessary.
I have enjoyed all of my classes except for my first semester of Biology, which I ended up having to take twice. The instructor and I didn't get along very well, and he went too fast for me to keep up, so I got left behind a lot of the time. Even with one of my friends helping me, I still made a D. The second go-around, I chose a different instructor, who actually cares about me, and who will sit down and explain things to where I can understand them. I made a B with her. There is a large variety of classes offered, both online and in class. Classes are pretty straight forward.
