If you are struggling with your grades and need tutoring services, UTC offers a number of resources to help you achieve your academic goals. The first step is asking for help.
Talk to your professors. Many of the academic departments have tutors on staff to assist students who need help in class. Your professors will be able to inform you of what services are offered and how you can take advantage of them.
Also, check out these resources available to students across campus. If you aren’t sure if an office can help you, call! If they cannot meet your need, they should be able to point you in the direction of someone that can.
