Fall 2014 Academic Resources

The Office of Academic Enrichment provides a number of resources that can provide help to students who are struggling, as well as to those who are successful and looking for ways to sharpen their skills.

TUTORING

  • Individual Tutoring.  We are happy to announce that you now can hire our individual tutors online!  Undergraduate tutors are available for $13.00/hr; graduate tutors are $16.00/hr.
  • Drop-In Tutoring.  Two hours a day, five days a week, drop-in tutoring is available in math, chemistry and physics.
  • Group Tutoring.  Free group tutoring in a number of courses is offered each semester.  Groups are formed in response to student requests.

STUDY SKILLS ASSISTANCE

  • Workshops at the OAE.   We appreciate your posting our workshop schedule where it will be visible to students visiting your department; feel free to make as many copies as you wish.
  • Online workshops:  Your Roadmap to Success (http://www.udel.edu/AEC-workshop/).  These workshops are designed to help students identify skill areas they need to improve in, to practice new techniques, and to evaluate their progress.
  • Study Skills course (UNIV113).   This one-credit pass/fail course includes comprehensive coverage of strategies for successful studying, which are then put to use in a concurrent “target class” of the student’s choice.  While the course is aimed at freshmen and sophomores, exceptions can be made for other students when needed. Only a few seats left!
  • Academic Intake appointments. Any student can meet with one of our staff members to assess his/her current study strategies and develop a plan for strengthening those strategies.  In particular, students in academic difficulty can benefit from this one-on-one academic counseling.

The OAE Newsletter provides a quick overview of offerings.  For more details on OAE programs, visit our website.

Townsend Hall Commons is Getting a Face Lift!

The Commons will not be available from Monday, September 8-Friday, September 12 due to carpeting and painting activities. More than likely the only way to get to 132 will be from the external side-door entrance during this time.

Starting Monday, the following rooms can be used for studying, subject to availability:

006 (computer lab)
049 (ANFS conference room)
156 (PLSC conference room)
256 (ENWE conference room)
057 (bat cave*)

The three conference rooms 049, 156, and 256 at the south end of the building (closest to Worrilow) will be open for use during times when they are not already reserved for meetings. Likewise 006 is unavailable when a class is meeting. Schedules will be posted on doors so that you know whether they are available. Please just make sure that you keep the spaces clean; the departments are happy to let you use the rooms so long as they stay in good shape. And of course, these are smaller spaces so pretend you’re in a library to avoid driving other folks crazy.

* OK, so this room isn’t a bat cave, which would be entertaining, but it’s windowless and a little hard to find. What it does offer is counter-like tables with outlets for plugging in laptops and uninterrupted availability during the daytime. Conceptually it’s directly below 132 Townsend. To find it, head for the elevator on the first floor then look for directional signs sending you on a journey to the end of a universe, er, hallway. Leave bread crumbs to find your way back.
