Academic Success Tips

In order to get the most out of your time at the Academic Success Centre, you should come prepared to discuss your course material and current assignments.

Here are a few tips to help you make each session a success:

  • Have your notes and textbooks with you.
  • Have your course outline and handouts or assignment instructions readily available (paper copy, digital, Moodle).
  • Attempt the work prior to your appointment and identify where you need help.
  • Don't expect us to provide answers to assignment questions (we will help explain concepts but you need to complete all your work).
  • Don't wait until the last minute to get help.
  • Be active during tutoring sessions and work with your tutor.
  • Tell us if we are moving too quickly or if you need a concept explained differently.
  • Regularly check your Keyano email and course Moodle(s). 
  • Attend classes and ask questions of your instructor that are related to course delivery and expectations.
