By asking for help you are recognizing that you need help and demonstrating strength and intelligence.
The Learning Skills Center helps students across campus improve course performance. Our statistics show that students who initiate and follow through with tutoring do considerably better in their classes than those who do not initiate and follow through on their requests for tutoring.
So, at the first sign of difficulty, or if you ever have an Oh! Oh! moment in a class, you should initiate tutoring. It's easy to arrange meetings with a tutor. Don't forget to keep your appointments.
Your ultimate reward will be visible on your transcript. And one other thing: Our tutors have been known to sign‐up for tutoring themselves. That's how they ensure their own good grades.
- Tutoring is not a substitute for class attendance.
- Tutors don't do the work for the students being tutored.
- Tutors can oversee a student's progress in a course or specific portion of the course.
- Tutoring may be one‐on‐one or in small‐group or seminar/workshop settings.
- Learning Skills Center tutors are academically competent in their subjects and fully trained and supervised to ensure student success.
- A student's academic success through tutoring depends on that student's commitment to improvement.
