Academic Skills Support

In addition to tutoring and the Learning Strategies course, students may seek help from the Learning Center for a variety of reasons. The Learning Center staff will often meet with students for one-on-one appointments to address issues such as:

  • Test anxiety and testing strategies
  • Effective note-taking
  • Establishing an academic organizational system
  • Time management 
  • Effective study skills

These appointments are personalized per student request and may include discussion of strengths and learning styles, identification of trouble areas, brainstorming sessions for strategies that suit the student’s personal needs, and encouragement in the pursuit of academic goals.

From time to time, the Learning Center offers small group workshops on the topics above. Students may come to the workshops for academic tips, a snack and some encouragement in their academic endeavors.
