Academic Services Center
PLEASE NOTE: We do not provide tutoring over the summer. Our tutoring services will resume when the fall semester begins.
Matched tutoring is a weekly commitment. Tutoring is most beneficial if you work regularly, not just the night before an exam.
College tutoring is not a "remedial" service, but is intended to help successful high school students adjust to university-level courses. Work to understand the course material prior to meeting with the tutor. The tutor's function is to help you identify study strategies that work for you, not to teach the course. Have your textbook, class notes, and previous quizzes with you during your tutoring meetings.
In addition to tutoring, our center also offers four different Study Skills one-on-one coaching sessions you may find helpful. The topics covered in these one-time one hour meetings are: Time Management, Textbook Study Strategies, Lecture Note-taking, and Test Taking Techniques. These study skills sessions can be useful in helping you adjust to the general study habits needed to be successful in college. They are especially helpful for courses which require a lot of reading and for which we do not provide tutoring.
