We are already approaching the middle of the semester, but are you keeping up with all your reading and homework? Here are a few words of wisdom to help you:

  • Read everyday rather than putting it off till an assignment is due or before your exam.
  • Ask your professor to explain parts that you didn't understand.
  • If you are having trouble in any of your classes, sign up for tutoring at the Learning Resources Center.

You probably know what to expect in your classes now. Some of them may be "easy As" and some you may be "not quite as easy". Well fear no more folks. The Learning Resources Center offers tutoring for certain classes. Apply for a tutor for a class and meet once a week. It can be the difference of a grade letter or more! On the other hand, if you think you did well in a class... why not help others by applying to become a tutor?
