The Carey Business School’s Student Success Center (SSC) provides online and in-person one-on-one and group tutoring sessions in writing, presentation skills, and quantitative subjects, as well as a variety of workshops. Our goal is to support your classroom learning by providing the tools needed to develop critical thinking skills and work through assignments on your own. Writing assistance focuses on helping you become a critical reader and independent writer of your work, and quantitative assistance aims to help you understand and apply math-related concepts. Our primary mission is to guide you in developing skills needed to complete homework, tests, papers, and other coursework independently.


  • Develop critical thinking skills and increase academic and professional self-sufficiency.
  • Develop and apply skills needed to succeed in written assignments and quantitative courses.
  • Establish an understanding of the importance of writing and presenting as a significant part of continued learning and personal and professional success.


If you have questions or concerns, please email or contact the Assistant Director at your campus.

Self-Guided Resources

Realizing that some students may not have time to visit the Student Success Center, we have compiled resources to aid in self-guided learning. We are not affiliated with the resources provided but suggest that students explore them in an effort to support their academic endeavors.

Our Tutors

Our supportive National Tutoring Association certified tutors are here to assist you with writing skills, presentation skills, and quantitative subjects. We employ current students and professional tutors with expertise in the subjects and skills needed to help you in a variety of areas. While writing tutors are not proofreaders or editors, they can guide you during any stage of the writing process. Quantitative tutors have received outstanding GMAT/GRE scores or classroom grades and come recommended by their instructors. Our tutors are sensitive to the many different needs of students and work hard to explain concepts, make recommendations, and show you how to apply those concepts in your work. Tutors differ from Teaching Assistants, as they do not lecture or provide course overview, and instead provide one-on-one and group tutoring when you experience difficulty understanding course concepts.
