Learning specialists are available to meet with students interested in improving their academic skills or who have questions about optimizing their performance in one or more classes. Based on each student’s interests, past experience and individual approach to learning, the Learning Specialist will helps the student develop some practical strategies. Walk ins are welcome but appointments are recommended. During an initial meeting you will explore needs and identify unique learning characteristics and then plan a course of action. Ongoing meetings to monitor progress are possible as well as semester long "coaching" arrangements.
The Peer Tutoring program provides quality, course-specific academic support to students at no cost. Tutoring sessions are tailored to meet individual student's interests and needs. The focus is to foster independent learning. The Peer Tutors are undergraduate students who have excelled in the course they tutor and have been trained to facilitate discussions on course content as well as study skills and strong academic habits.
The Learning Specialists have found a number of online resources that students can explore on their own on topics such as learning styles, time management, handling anxiety, organization exam preparation and active learning and other topics. In addition we have included Electronic tools and apps that we have used and recommended to students.
