Tips for getting the most out of your experience with the Center for Academic Achievement
Plan aheadAt the start of the semester, note on a calendar when all your major papers, projects, presentations, and exams are due. This will help you spot assignments which you would like to work on while in our office.
Book your appointments earlySince tutorials are by-appointment, please call approximately one week in advance to schedule a time to visit the center, particularly during mid-terms and at the end of the semester.
Know what you can cover in one sessionIn general, three or four pages of writing is typical for what can be covered in a 50-minute session. If you have a long paper, make several appointments, or pinpoint specific parts of the paper on which to focus. Bring your assignments, relevant books, and notes with you.
Keep your appointmentTutors can give feedback on works in progress, even if you are still in the planning stages of a paper or project. This can be useful if you are feeling stuck or unsure of how to approach the next steps.
Testing AccommodationsThe Center for Academic Achievement provides space for students with documented disabilities, and who have ADA accommodations for extended time and/or a distraction-free space for test-taking. If you wish to arrange space in our office, please visit and fill out the necessary forms at least one-week prior to your test or exam. This allows time for the professor to become informed of the request, grant permission, and deliver the exam to our office in advance of the test date.
