Academic Support helps students develop college skills and knowledge through study skills and student life planning assistance.
Homework Help Sessions
Each week, there will be days dedicated to providing walk-in help tutoring sessions to deal with the high demand for math tutoring . In general, tutors will be available to assist students on a walk-in basis. Students are welcome to come to the Math/Tutoring Center to receive assistance on their math homework without an appointment. During the designated hours tutors will be available to provide assistance on a first-come, first-served basis. Students must come prepared with specific questions in order to receive aid from tutors. Consult the Tutoring Schedule to determine when tutors with expertise in the needed subject is available.
Academic Success Seminars (workshops)
A series of seminars (workshops) are conducted each semester to assist students with developing and improving their college-readiness skills. Topics include time-management, study skills, test-taking skills, managing test anxiety, note taking and reading strategies and more. Consult the upcoming events page or the Spring 2015 Academic Success Seminars flyer and sign up for seminar dates online.
In addition to the seminars offered, students may elect to meet with Academic Services for a more personalized discussion of their academic concerns. Students with special circumstances may elect to meet for a consultation or students may elect a one-on-one meeting following a workshop to continue the discussion or when a workshop is not offered that addresses an individual’s need. Consultations are offered by request. Contact Kimberly LaBoone to schedule a meeting.
