SCORE BIG with assistance from the LRC or Writing Center!

Want to recover a FUMBLE in a class,
and advance toward a TOUCHDOWN? 
Want to INTERCEPT the info you'll need
to SCORE BIG on your final grade?

The Learning Resource Center (LRC) is OPEN, and offers FREE tutoring and supplemental instruction services to all registered UMass students.  They're on the 10th floor of the W.E.B. DuBois Library, and are open Sunday through Thursday, from 1:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Tutorial support is available on a walk-in basis for many first and second year courses. Students may be tutored individually or in small groups. Supplemental Instruction (SI) provides informal, peer-facilitated review seminars for a particular course and section; SI sessions meet regularly. During SI sessions, students compare notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools and predict test items. 

Also in the library, downstairs in the Learning Commons, you will find the Writing Center.  There, in a 45-minute consultation with a knowledgeable tutor, you can get help with any part of the writing process.  Go online to schedule an appointment, and schedule ahead, for the busy periods of the semester!   

Whether it's to pull you out of near failure in a class, or to boost your grade from a B+ to an A-, making use of LRC and Writing Center services can really help!  Make sure you seek help EARLY - don't wait until you get far behind before you seek out assistance.  Also, remember to bring your student ID card when you use LRC services.
