Peer Tutoring

Peer tutoring is available for students in need of academic support. Through the program, students benefit from one-on-one coaching, while students who excel academically can get first-hand tutoring experience by helping their peers. Students can receive support in all general academic areas, with literacy skills, or in adjusting to the demands of college academic life. Students who find that the regular ACE support is not enough should contact Nina Phillips at [email protected], or call 267-502-2518. She can arrange one-on-one peer tutoring on request, and will evaluate what the student needs and whether they qualify for the peer tutoring program.­­

Academic Advising

Academic advising connects each student with a full-time faculty member who provides support in shaping and pursuing a course of study. Advisors assist with registration, course selection, and navigating college to achieve specific career choices and life goals. All students meet with their advisors regularly.
