Center for Academic Achievement

The Center for Academic Achievement will provide writing tutoring, subject tutoring, Supplemental Instruction (SI), and peer academic coaching online via Zoom appointments this fall.  Online writing and student success workshops will also be offered.

Students will make tutoring appointments through Starfish (Tools menu of the Portal). After doing so, students will receive an email from their assigned tutor with a link to the Zoom appointment. If the appointment is for writing tutoring, students must reply to that email with a copy of their paper in a Microsoft Word document before the date of their tutoring appointment. Students in courses with Supplemental Instruction (SI) will hear directly from their SI Leaders regarding online weekly review session times.
