Learning Center Resources
Talk to your professor and/or TA about issues you may be having in class; they should always be your first point of contact. Remember, tutoring isn't a quick fix! Assess your study habits, find a study partner or join a study group. For more help schedule an appointment with our academic success coach to help address any underlying academic concerns you have.
