The Academic Support Center (ASC) offers peer tutoring assistance to students in all aspects of their academic development. The ASC's emphasis is on the individual student, and his or her personal development in any field of study.
The Center encourages constructive dialogue between the student and the tutors, with the aim of imparting to students academic skills that will improve their performance in all aspects of their academic career and scholarship. Both the tutor and the student are active participants in the tutoring sessions, and the tutors' ultimate goal is to encourage self-sufficient learning. Thus, we emphasize a two-sided, collaborative process in which the student seeking tutoring is well-prepared and ready with assignment prompts, homework, and other relevant course material.
All ASC tutors are full-time students and, while some get paid for their work, most volunteer their time to the Center.
Students will be helped on a 'first-come, first-served' basis.
Tutors are available 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM, Monday through Wenesday in KAIC 221.
Tutors are also available by appointment outside of walk-in hours. Please email the tutor you'd like to meet with, and please give tutors 24-hour notice for appointments.
