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.

To meet with an academic skills tutor one-on-one, go to Tutor Search and put academic skills as the course. Currently academic skills tutors are only available on the Tempe campus in the Student Pavilion tutoring center.
