Here are our top resources and recommendations for furthering your success in your Business courses!
We highly encourage you to connect with your professor and attend office hours first! Professor office hours are often posted on the front of the syllabus, and they can serve as a great entry point to discussing how you are doing in the class and how to make productive changes in the way you study moving forward.
2. Supplemental Instruction (SI)
SI is offered for the following courses:
Check out our SI Session schedule on our Tutoring Center homepage (www.luc.edu/tutoring) for SI session times. If your section does not have an SI Leader, you are welcome to attend any SI session for the course. No appointment is needed! SI sessions are regularly scheduled, out-of-class group study sessions led by an undergrad SI leader and driven by your needs. You can expect to review notes, discuss and participate in activities around materials/ lecture, review and predict test questions, and work out problems together. Please bring your notes, textbook, and any other study materials to SI sessions.
SI sessions are online! Access the SI session schedule on our homepage (luc.edu/tutoring) for Zoom links to your SI sessions! For more information on how to use Zoom in a SI session, please see below or visit our SI program page.

Peer Tutoring sessions are online. If you make an appointment on Navigate, you will be able to access your Zoom link 15 minutes before your appointment on Navigate on the main page. For more information on how to use Zoom in a peer tutoring session, see below or visit our peer tutoring program page.
