The AARC has a long history of working with faculty members to support the institution’s high standards. As previous faculty members ourselves, AARC’s management team understands the importance of students developing these mentoring relationships. We like to say that we're No. 2 because the professor is always No. 1! We appreciate when faculty members refer students to us who are in need as well as students to serve as tutors.
Request a Class Visit
If you have a tutor assigned to your course, check with them first. Otherwise, let us know if you’d like a five minute introduction to the AARC by a student tutor.
Request a Tour
We encourage you to bring students by the AARC to acquaint them with our services and our people! To arrange for a tour, submit an online AARC tour request.
Workshops and seminars for your students
Make use of the AARC’s workshops and seminars to provide your students an academic boost. All workshops and seminars offered for the fall will be delivered in an online format only. We offer 50-minute workshops and seminars given by the AARC Writing Program via Zoom. For the Learning Strategies workshop, we recommend scheduling after the first test when students are more likely to engage.
