Tutoring and Study Skills

Tutoring and Study Skills at the Academic Success Center

Academic Success Center (ASC) locations feature staff members who not only tutor students in course-specific skills and concepts, but also suggest valuable study skills and strategies for mastering course content.

The ASC staff approaches tutoring in a way that helps students acquire skills and become more in control of their success outside the ASC and the classroom.

How to Get the Most from Each Tutoring Session

  • Visit the ASC early and often throughout the term.
  • Establish a specific goal during each tutoring visit. 
  • Bring textbooks, class notes, past exams or papers, course syllabus, and assignment directions or prompts. Doing this helps the students and tutors during a tutoring session.
  • Make note of specific questions to discuss with a tutor. 
  • Participate actively in every tutoring session. Learning is an active process.
  • Seek time to work independently after discussing a topic with a tutor. This allows tutors so see how comfortable students are with the content. 
  • Attend and participate in your class regularly. Tutors discuss specific concepts with students and not teach lessons like an instructor. Time spent with a tutor is not a replacement for class instruction.
