Academic Skills Tutoring

Accepting Academic Skills Tutoring Request for Fall 2022!

What is Academic Skills Tutoring? 

Academic skills tutoring pairs a student with a tutor trained to assist in four main areas related to academic success: time management, note-taking, study skills, and test-taking skills. The tutor will work with you to identify areas of strength and improvement, build confidence and practice skills for success, and help you apply these skills to classes and other academic responsibilities.  Resources are also provided, including worksheets and study tips. Students are welcome to sign up for a one-time or a recurring appointment, with a variety of times available each week.
