Workshops & Materials

Academic primers

We work with Carey faculty to offer you academic preparation sessions prior to the start of each academic year. These sessions aim to prepare you for difficult course content and provide you with the knowledge needed to increase your chance of classroom success.

*Primers will resume at the beginning of Fall 2018 and will include topics such as Excel, statistics, accounting, U.S. law, the U.S. press, economics, corporate finance, and investments. 

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.
