Academic Help Center
Albright College provides students with many offices dedicated to student academic success. This Toolbox was created for students to provide a centralized location for these offices’ academic support resources and to briefly familiarize students with these many offices and their services. Some of these resources apply across all academic years, while others are limited to the current academic year, and the toolbox has them organized by category under each drop down menu.
In order to explore these services more deeply, or if the resource in question cannot be found in the toolbox, follow the links below to each office’s individual webpage to learn more and to access their contact information.
Student Academic Resources Toolbox
Peer tutoring is available for many 100-200 level courses up to 2 hours/week. Peer tutors review course content, discuss questions, and help students prepare for tests and assignments. Most tutors will have successfully completed the course and be able to provide additional success strategies.
The Writing Center offers free sessions with peer writing and reading tutors to discuss all aspects of the writing process including brainstorming, composition and editing skills. Peer tutors work with writers at any skill level and for any writing course. Interactive sessions will help develop your ideas through meaningful conversations about writing.
