Academic Mentors

Peer mentors are academic coaches who work with students on all things academic! Personalized meetings address what you are experiencing in your classes, while studying, and as a student. Meet with an academic mentor weekly or as needed to improve your study skills. Most students benefit from working on:

  • Time management
  • Organization
  • Studying for and taking exams
  • Problem solving approaches
  • Notetaking skills
  • Reading skills
  • Canvas analysis
  • Syllabi analysis
  • Online portal learning tools

Academic mentors are available by appointment or through our drop-in hours at Smith Hall (second floor). To schedule an appointment with a mentor of your choice, visit our CFAR calendar (first step will be to create an account).
