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

If you are more comfortable learning about academic skills on your own, the UASP staff have recorded videos on a variety of topics. You will need an ASU Zoom account in order to watch them. In some cases, the videos were recorded in front of a live-streaming audience.
