Academic Support

Academic Support offers tutoring, writing assistance, academic skill building, and workshop opportunities to assist students in achieving a comprehensive understanding of course materials and develop academic skills.

Our team members tailor each 1:1 session, study group and workshop to the needs of the learner, creating purposeful and intentional pathways toward academic achievement.

Academic Tutoring

Our tutors work are committed to empowering students as they grow in their knowledge related to a specific course. Tutors work with students in small groups or on a one-on-one basis to foster a deeper understanding of course concepts. Using collaborative learning exercises that facilitate independent learning, our goal is for students to leave a tutoring session feeling encouraged and confident in their abilities to accomplish academic tasks.

Academic Skill Building

ASB Peer Educators offer a unique experience for students to develop skills and strategies that will embolden them to become independent and active learners. Ready to engage students across disciplines, our Academic Skill Builders receive extensive training in learning strategies such as time management, note-taking, study skills, prioritization and much more. They help students evaluate, identify and create targeted goals before implementing new practices and routines to support their learning.
