Study Skills

Students often find it difficult to adjust to the rigors of the college curriculum.  Many report that they did not find it necessary to apply themselves in high school to perform adequately.  Additionally they recognize that parents and teachers often played a large role in helping them stay organized and managing their time.  Consequently, they may have never developed effective study habits and their academic performance is college suffers.  Students without effective strategies for studying and time management often feel overwhelmed  and anxious about tests and other demands.

For students who want or need assistance developing academic skills, we offer guidance in
