Ep. 021: Tutoring Options at the Julia N. Visor Center

It’s mid-semester, and some students may be having an “ah-ha” (or an “uh-oh”) moment in regards to their grades. There’s help for struggling students through the Julia N. Visor Center, part of Illinois State’s University College. We talk with Pamm Ambrose, an associate director with the College, who highlights their foundational approach to helping students achieve. We also talk about some common misconceptions about the services the Center offers (the Visor Center is not about "advisement"), and the importance of coaching students to cultivate learning skills and move beyond ineffective study habits. We also showcase how faculty members can help students take advantage of the Visor Center’s many services.
