A PAC is an opportunity to meet one-on-one with an ACE instructor to review and make improvements to their study and personal success habits. These free consultations involve assessing a student’s needs and developing a plan of action for reaching their academic goals. Consultations are not intended as long-term academic coaching, but it is sometimes possible to schedule a follow-up consultation to review progress and make adjustments to the student’s academic strategies.
SLS 1122 is a one-credit, letter-graded course where students develop skills in organization, time management, note taking, learning strategies, test preparation, and critical reading in college. The course is taught using a combination of classroom lecture and discussion, small group activities, and individual assignments. Each student meets one-on-one with their instructor to set personal and academic goals.
The courses we offer tutoring vary each semester. Please see the current offerings on our course-based tutoring page.
