Students who visit the Academic Success Center have the opportunity to schedule individual appointments with Professional Tutors, all of whom have earned bachelor’s degrees, and most of whom hold advanced degrees. Our Professional Tutors offer a wealth of experience and are available to work individually with students to improve their reading, writing, and Praxis review strategies across the disciplines, in addition to helping non-native speakers improve their command of the English Language.
Appointments with the Professional Tutors can be scheduled through TutorTrac or by emailing [email protected].
This resource is provided to our students at no additional cost to them.
