Student Success Tutors

Schedule an Appointment

Student Success Tutors help their peers expand their study skills and organizational strategies to become more academically successful. They do this work through the Academic Skills Series workshops, tabling events, drop-in sessions, and one-on-one appointments. These services are free and open to all students both in-person and online.

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!
