Do I Need Tutoring?

This is a very common question. In case you are unsure of the answer, here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • Have you missed classes due to illness, business, or a family emergency?
  • Are you having difficulty understanding the material that is presented in class?
  • Was your exam score lower than you expected?
  • Is your lab assignment not working properly?
  • Have you been away from the class environment for a number of years?
  • Do you suffer from test anxiety?
  • Are your study habits lacking?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the ASC can assist you.
