Faculty Resources

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 Workshop

The AARC offers the workshops below, each lasting approximately 50 minutes. We recommend scheduling workshops after the first test when students are more likely to engage. Faculty also may schedule workshops when absent as an alternative to canceling class​.

Workshops offered through the AARC are as follows:

  • From Syllabus to Study Plan: Learn how to make time for studying within a tight schedule and still have time for fun.
  • Get What You Need To Succeed: Learn how to recognize information from class lecture and the textbook that you will need to know on the test.
  • Test For Success: Learn proven organization and study methods for tests that will help you identify what you don’t know and turn stress into success.
  • Document It - MLA, APA or Chicago Style: Learn how to construct a research paper in the style of your choice and avoid plagiarism.

Contact Kathy Bryson, AARC writing program director, at to schedule a workshop for your class.
