During the academic year we offer courses that are taught in conjunction with the large, introductory level courses in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics. These courses meet weekly to clarify lecture material, provide tips for effectively learning the material, and prepare for exams.
Tutoring assistance is available for many courses offered at the University in biology, chemistry, economics, physics, mathematics, and statistics. Free walk-in tutoring is offered by LSC faculty and peer tutors. Detailed schedules are available from the Tutoring Program Web Page, at the Learning Strategies Center office in 420 CCC, and at college advising offices. Advice for students seeking tutoring as well as tutors can be found on the Tutoring Program Web Page.
Assistance with study skills is available through FREE workshops.
