Who We Are
We base our philosophy and approach to tutoring on an understanding of language development as an activity of critical reading, writing, and thinking. Our primary goal is to help students develop their own academic skills – rethinking and revising papers, developing the context of writing, or identifying and correcting their own mistakes.
What We Offer
Success offers a variety of

It is important for students to take responsibility for the aim of the tutoring session. We request that students bring with them the assignment handout, class notes, or other related writing and material from the class so that the tutor will know the context of the assignment.

We do not offer editing/proofreading services. We do not "fix" essays or do a student's research or homework.
How to Connect
Students can come by L-219 to schedule a time for weekly tutoring or to have a walk-in session.
