Email firstname.lastname@example.org giving specifics of what type of tutor you are looking for and time(s) you are available to meet with a tutor. Once received, an administrator will work to try to find a tutor that can meet with you.
If a tutor needs to cancel an appointment due to illness or some other issue, you should receive a Starfish notification canceling the appointment. In the event the tutor does not do this and they are more than 15 minutes late, please email email@example.com so that an administrator can appropriately address the situation within one business day.
We do not share attendance information with faculty members unless we are collaborating with them if they require tutoring visits for the course. If, however, you wish to let your instructor know you utilized the Center, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and directly ask for your tutoring records to be shared.
Academic coaching is a kind of tutoring that focuses on your learning strategies, time management, and goal setting. It helps you identify areas of strength and improvement and create an action plan for overall academic success.
You can schedule an appointment using Starfish. If none of the available appointments work with your schedule, you can email email@example.com to request an appointment.
See if the course is offered again and has open seats in the next semester. If so, it’s ideal to repeat the failed course as soon as possible. You should register for the course you failed; consult with your adviser about what other changes may need to be made to your schedule to make sure you are taking the proper number, sequence, and combination of courses for major and University requirements.
While the Center tries to support as many classes as possible, there may occasions where no tutor exists for a particular course. If that is the case, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you would like a tutor for the course. While we may not be able to find one immediately, it will let the Center know that a tutor may be needed this semester or in the future.
It depends! Tutoring is highly individualized to the needs of the student. However, all writing tutorials are highly conversational. You can expect to talk about your paper, read through it with a tutor, and receive feedback on areas of strength and opportunities for improvement.
Bring anything related to the writing assignment including a draft of the paper (hard copy or electronic), the assignment sheet, and any notes or outside sources that are important to the assignment.
Yes! All Writing Tutors are trained to work with non-native speakers.
No, the original author of the paper must be present either in an in-person or live online tutorial session.

To ensure students’ rights to privacy, we do not share attendance during the semester. A student may, however, verify their attendance by emailing email@example.com and asking for their tutoring records be shared. We do sometimes work with faculty who want to require students to attend writing tutoring appointments for a specific assignment.
If you are unsure which of our service(s) would best suit a student, refer them to Melissa Gallagher (firstname.lastname@example.org). She will meet with the student to better understand the students’ needs and refer them to service(s) as needed.
The Center welcomes working with Faculty to address student needs. If you email us at email@example.com, a Center administrator will get back to you to brainstorm how you and the Center can work together to address the need.
The Academic Support for Student-Athletes Office is designed to assist student-athletes throughout their studies at La Salle University. Initially, the primary goal is to assist student-athletes in their transition to the collegiate environment and to help them better understand the academic and athletic demands they will encounter. Through educational programming, advising, counseling and other support services, La Salle student-athletes are encouraged and supported in their pursuit of personal, academic, career, and athletic goals. La Salle student-athletes are encouraged to be actively involved in their educational process as the balance of academic and athletic achievement is fostered.
Academic Support for Student Athletes is located in TruMark Financial Center room 201.
Study hall is a monitored and structured study environment where student-athletes work individually on their class assignments or with specific tutors. Staff members are present to answer any questions you may have or to assist you with any difficulties you may be encountering. Study hall is required for all new student athletes (this includes transfer students) and continuing students-athletes who have a cumulative grade point average below a 2.5. Study hall is typically offered Monday through Thursday from 9:00 AM until 9:30 PM and Friday from 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM. Study Hall is held in the Academic Achievement Center in Trumark Financial Center. Student-athletes assigned to study hall are typically held accountable for four or more hours of study hall each week and are expected to attend on a consistent basis. Weekly attendance reports are promptly given to all head coaches.
The staff in the Academic Support for Student-Athletes Office communicates on a regular basis with university faculty and staff. The purpose of this communication is to monitor the academic performance of our students and to be aware of any academic concerns or difficulties they may be experiencing. Academic information obtained from this communication generally comes in the form of Academic Progress Reports conducted through Starfish. The staff also communicates with faculty concerning travel due to athletic competitions. At the beginning of each athletic competition season, each head coach provides Academic Support for Student-Athletes with a team travel schedule. ASSA will prepare a PDF letter for the entire semester indicating travel times and days. Student Athletes are responsible provide these letters to each of their instructors promptly. Finally, it is the student athlete’s responsibility to remind their instructors of travel dates and arrange to make up any class work missed during their absence.
