Academic Success Student Workshops

 

Small group workshops are scheduled each month during the semester.  For those who cannot make it to one of the scheduled workshops, appointments for a one-on-one workshop with a tutor can be made by submitting a request to sac-tutoring@alamo.edu.  Please indicate which workshop you are interested in and at what time you would be available.  Our staff will check to see if any of our tutors are free at the requested time.

The S.L.A.C. offers a variety of workshops to help students succeed -- APA & MLA formatting, Study Skills, Note Taking, Test Taking, Time & Stress Management just to name a few.  We are always looking to add new workshops to the list.  If there is a topic you would like to see covered, please email us at sac-tutoring@alamo.edu and we can look into having our tutors develop a workshop to address the topic.
