Campuswide Tutoring

Peer and TA tutoring are available free of charge for many courses. In addition to ASLA's Drop-In Tutoring and Study Group options, language, writing, and other kinds of support are available. Don't forget to take advantage of your professor's office hours, and don't overlook the importance of your own study strategies. Need some help with those? Consider academic coaching.
