About the Academic Centers for Excellence

The Academic Centers for Excellence (ACE) offers a variety of free learning support programs through the Learning Center and the Writers’ Room to assist students in the development of skills and strategies that will help them become successful and independent learners.

The Learning Center offers drop-in tutoring, exam reviews, supplemental instruction, and workshops. Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions are regularly scheduled, informal review sessions in which students integrate course content and study skills. Study Smarter academic coaches meet one-on-one with students to determine their strengths and weaknesses as learners. Together a student and coach design strategies to meet individual needs. Academic skills workshops are designed to enhance the development of effective learning skills.

The Writers’ Room offers writing tutoring for any subject, any course. Whether a student is exploring ideas, organizing their thoughts, or polishing the draft of their paper, a tutor can help them improve their writing. Students can use the computer laboratory to write and print papers, and find podcasts and writing resources on the website. Students can also sign up for a WriteWell coach, who will give them the personalized, consistent attention they need to improve overall skills as writers.

Information on all of our services, including schedules and forms, can be accessed from the ACE website
