About Reading and Study Skills Assistance

Reading is a fundamental skill that is critical for success in college. We provide assistance for students seeking to find help with most aspects of college reading: difficult reading assignments, managing large reading assignments, or with skills needed to understand and complete instructor assignments.

Study skills support provides students with strategies to enhance classroom learning. We provide assistance for students seeking help with skills such as note taking, time management, goal setting, test preparation, test-taking, and other study strategies. 

We provide reading and study skills assistance in the Student Success Center on the second floor of the Learning Resource building, room 202.

We encourage you to make an appointment to work with one of our learning specialists. Our appointments are for 30 minutes.

  

Successful students do the following when seeking help...

  • Bring all instructor assignments, class materials, as well as notes from class to tutoring appointments
  • Make appointments with tutors or Learning Specialist prior to the assignment's due date
  • Use time wisely before, during, and after the tutoring appointment
  • Know that the tutoring appointment will provide support and guidance, but will not replace class attendance or homework completion
  • Actively participate in the tutoring and learning process

 How To Study

…it's not just reading the textbook? See definitions and what the studying process is from going to class to getting an A on the test.  Here's where all the stuff is, both study skills and how to study sections. How to write has been added to the how to study section under each discipline area. Be sure to read what other college students are saying. Just click on the book next to the handout.  See: http://howtostudy.org

The Student Academic Resource Center at the University of Central Florida offers a wide array of learning tools.  http://sarc.sdes.ucf.edu/resources


Academic Resource Core Links

This webpage was originally designed in late 1997 as a student reference source of links to tutorials and other resources on the Internet in subjects taught at a two year technical college in Tennessee which has since merged with another two year college. The scope has expanded beyond this original objective. ARC refers to Academic content of Internet Resources for the Core subject areas in Mathematics, the Sciences, Writing, Computer Science, Engineering, and Technology at the college level. There is some slant toward areas that involve computers and the creator’s own background in electrical engineering

Major subject areas are listed in the table of contents. Links that appear under each subject area are numbered and include a very brief description of its content. See: http://arc-links.weebly.com/

Since 1996 the Study Guides and Strategies web site has been researched, authored, maintained and supported by Joe Landsberger as an international, learner-centric, educational public service. Permission is granted to freely copy, adapt, and distribute individual Study Guides in print format in non-commercial educational settings that benefit learners. Please be aware that the Guides welcome, and are under, continuous review and revision. For that reason, reproduction of all content on the Internet can only be with permission through a licensed agreement. No request to link to the Web site is necessary.  http://www.studygs.net/index.htm
