Academic Skills Review

Our Academic Skills Review is a free workshop that can help prepare you to succeed in your course work. Held during the Fall and Spring quarters, the review covers skills, tools and strategies in these essential areas:

  1. Getting the Most Out of Your Reading: We'll discuss and practice concrete strategies for increasing how much you absorb when you read.
  2. Critical Thinking and Writing: We'll practice analyzing an argument and developing your own critical response to it.
  3. The Process of Writing: We'll break the process of writing into manageable stages- from getting started, to organizing your material, to fine tuning your final draft.

In addition, we offer free one-on-one writing instruction in-person, via phone or fax, or by email..
