Academic Skills Tutors
UASP academic skills tutors are ASU students who can help you stay on track, improve academic skills and address any concerns you may have in your courses. The peer-to-peer interaction and mentorship create a comfortable, encouraging atmosphere for students seeking assistance in developing good study habits. Students meeting with the academic skills tutors will work in a collaborative environment with other students in similar courses. As necessary, the academic skills tutors can assist with note-taking and how to gain good reading strategies for college.
If you are interested in talking to someone about academic skills, contact Caitlin Simpson.
During academic skills tutoring visits, you can:
- increase your knowledge of campus resources
- gain advice and support from a fellow student
- develop communication skills to work with your professors and academic advisor
- strengthen your time management and study skills
- work on setting academic goals and measure your progress
Academic Skills Videos
