CAPS Tutoring: Follow this link to connect with a tutor. You must be logged in to Moodle and self-enrolled. After-hours tutoring via tutor.com is also available on our Moodle page.
Supplemental instruction offers academic assistance in the critical first six weeks, and throughout the semester to students in traditionally challenging courses. In informal peer-directed study sessions, students compare notes, discuss course content, develop organizational skills, and share test-taking strategies.
Feeling overwhelmed by your coursework? You may benefit from weekly sessions with a learning coach: a specialist who teaches you strategies to improve reading comprehension, math problem solving, and writing skills. Your coach will focus on time management, note-taking, organization, test anxiety, study skills, and critical thinking. With this level of one-on-one support, you can easily stay on track and succeed academically.
Workshops & Seminars
Small group instruction is offered throughout the academic year on topics designed to improve a student's progress at the college. Topics include stress management, assertiveness, note-taking, and test preparation. Schedules and announcements for these events are posted on college bulletin boards.
