What to Expect

The Learning Strategist provides professional learning strategy assistance and guidance, but will not do the work for the student (e.g. the Learning Strategist will not work on assignments or review test material).

Appointments are 45 minutes. 

Please be respectful and arrive on time. Failure to show up within 15 minutes of the start time will require you to reschedule. The time slot will then be made available to another student.

Failure to attend an appointment without notice will be recorded as a "no show."  After two "no shows," it will be at the discretion of the Learning Strategist whether to allow further appointments for the remainder of the semester.
