Academic Support

Peer Tutoring

While good study habits, effective learning strategies, and communication with instructors are the most important contributors to academic success, some students may need a little extra help in understanding some courses. The student advisors match student peer tutors with students who require learning assistance in specific courses or with general study skills. Also, there may be a peer tutor available on a drop-in basis for your needs. Reach out to the student advisor for your program for more information. We provide peer tutoring as a free service to our students. Becoming a  Peer Tutor is also an excellent way for students to earn some money while reinforcing their own knowledge and understanding by teaching others.

Learning Assistance

Student Advisors provide information, individual assistance, and workshops on study skills, effective test-taking strategies, time management, and other learning strategies.
