Tutors and study coaches help students develop a deeper understanding of class material, and gain successful skills that can improve their overall GPA. They assess student academic strengths and challenges and develop strategies for time-management, test-taking, text-book reading, memorization, and note-taking. Students can request and be matched for appointments with tutors and study coaches on staff throughout the term.
