Achievement Center (AC) Services:
The Achievement Center exists to promote student success by providing supportive resources for students at no additional cost. The center offers a number of services for all undergraduate students who would like to improve their learning skills and academic success at LETU. Services include Supplemental Instruction (SI), Tutoring, Math Lab, Study Skills Coaches, Round Table Sessions, Peer Advisors (PA), and the AIM (Academic Intervention and Mentoring) Program. For more information, visit the Achievement Center at www.letu.edu/AchievementCenter or drop by. We are located in the Student Affairs building next to Glaske.
Supplemental Instruction (SI):
SI sessions are a collaborative learning program designed to support students enrolled in historically difficult courses. A schedule of the sessions is posted at the Achievement Center web pages. Students who attend regularly have been known to earn a letter grade higher for that course than those students who did not regularly attend. How does it work? The SI attends class weekly with the students and then leads evening sessions to explain the material discussed in class. SIs are identified by the professors and are students who have already mastered the course.
The AC arranges for students to receive one-on-one tutoring. Personal tutors offer assistance in a variety of general education courses. The Center matches each student's need with a tutor for either individual or group tutorial times. Tutortrac.letu.edu.
The Math Lab is a drop-in tutoring center in the AC, which provides help for most undergraduate math courses. A Math Lab schedule is posted on the Center web pages at the beginning of each semester. Visit www.letu.edu/AchievementCenter for days and times.
The Writing Center is a free drop-in tutoring service designed to offer help for students who may be struggling with writing assignments.
