The Achievement and Learning Center (ALC) is a free resource for all UB students and offers support in three ways:
1) A tutor or study facilitator may be available for this course, either on-campus or online. Assistance in a variety of computer skills may also be available. Visit www.ubalt.edu/tutoring to learn more, or stop by AC113.
2) Writing consultants can work with you one-on-one to improve your papers and provide suggestions for revisions. Writing consultants provide feedback on anything you're writing for UB courses at any point in the writing process, from getting started to final editing. You can also submit to the Online Writing Link through the MyUB portal to receive audio MP3 feedback; look for the OWL icon.
3) To gain a competitive edge in the classroom or the workplace, make an appointment with Learning Consultant Cydney Delia. Cydney works with students on goal-setting, time management, efficient learning strategies, working in teams, oral presentations, and examtaking. She can help you develop a personalized "master plan" for accomplishing your goals.
