Here are our top resources and recommendations for furthering your success in your Environmental Science 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.

Note: As of March 16, all Peer Tutoring sessions are online. If you make an appointment on TutorTrac, your Peer Tutor will send you a Zoom link at least 1-hour prior to the appointment time. For more information on how to use Zoom in a peer tutoring session, see below or visit our peer tutoring program page.

Want to further develop your time management, test taking strategies, and overall study skills? Meet one-on-one with a Success Coach, who are training graduate students that can help take your academic success to the next level! You can talk about experiences inside and out of the classroom, identify areas of strength and growth, and create a customized, realistic plan for success. Make an appointment here. Appointments are available during summer session A!
Note: As of March 16, all Success Coaching appointments are online. After making an appointment on TutorTrac, your Success Coach will send you a Zoom link prior to the appointment time. For more information on how to use Zoom in a Success Coaching appointment, please see below or visit our Success Coaching program page.
If students have never used Zoom before, they are encouraged to login to https://luc.zoom.us/ using their LUC UVID and password prior to the session. Then, download the Zoom program (on laptops) or app (on smartphones/tablets).
If the student does not have access to a webcam, microphone, or the internet, the student is encouraged to reach out to the SI Leader, Peer Tutor, Success Coach, and/or Tutoring Center staff (firstname.lastname@example.org) for alternative options.
If the link is not working or the SI Leader/ Peer Tutor/ Success Coach is not present at the designated time, please email the student leader or email@example.com.
