Success Skills Tutoring

Success Skills Tutoring is individualized support to develop key skills to be successful in college. Success Skills Tutors facilitate a process that helps you build capacity for success by focusing on the building blocks essential to academic achievement.

Individual Sessions

You can meet with a Success Skills Tutor for a 50-minute session to learn new skills like:

  • Accessing Canvas
  • Navigating Course Expectations
  • Communication with Faculty and Staff
  • Calculating GPA
  • Reading and Note Taking
  • Studying and Test Taking
  • Time Management
  • Motivation
  • Body Doubling
  • Other Academic Success Tools

Success Skills Tutors are trained to help walk you through different strategies and how you can customize them to fit your individualized preferences. Just like with a personal trainer with strategies for fitness, the strategy does not produce the results, but following the strategy will!

Schedule a Tutoring Session

*Appointments must be scheduled 24-hours in advance of the appointment.

*Cancelations within 8-hours count as a no-show.

Body Doubling Hours

Body doubling: What is it? How does it work?

“Body doubling” is language from occupational therapy and is used as a technique to help individuals who find it difficult to sustain focus on a task. The idea is that having someone else in the same physical space can help reduce distractions, increase motivation, and improve productivity.

In Body Doubling Hours, you can come work in a productive environment led by a Success Skills Tutor who can check-in on your progress and will ensure the space stays productive. There is no need to schedule in advance.


Tutoring Services start the second week of courses, ends the last Friday of courses, and is closed during all university holidays and breaks.
