Student Success Tutors help fellow students expand their study skills and organizational strategies to become more academically successful.

Whether you’re looking to build your academic skill set from scratch, or simply want feedback and new ideas, Student Success Tutors are here to help you. Schedule time with them to learn about note taking, test preparation, time management, presentation skills, and more.

Spring 2021 Academic Skills Series Schedule

The Academic Skills Series presents a weekly topic related to your academic success. Monday evening drop-in sessions are open to all students, and you'll find a short, pre-recorded video from our Student Success Tutors on each topic here the week before the drop in. Hop on to visit with our Student Success Tutors, ask questions about the topic and get valuable pointers.
