Appointments at the ARC

Located in the lower level of the Gault Library, the Academic Resource Center (ARC) is open Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. for 1-on-1 appointments covering a variety of topics which are listed below. To book a meeting in any of these areas, you’ll just have to register with our ClockWork software, then you can schedule a one-on-one appointment online.

Academic Coaching

Academic Coaching individual sessions help you develop in four key areas:
1) developing an accurate understanding of your academic strengths and personal capabilities
2) feeling a sense of belonging
3) adopting a growth mindset
4) creating sustainable academic systems that support your classroom learning

By working with a coach, you can develop your understanding of your academic assets and define and clarify what you really want to get out of your college experience. By creating well-defined action steps and habits, you can increase your likelihood of achieving the kind of academic growth you would like. To register for academic coaching, please contact Amber Larson (alarson@wooster.edu) or Kate Gullatta (kgullatta@wooster.edu).

Academic Skill Development

In general academic support meetings you can discuss personalized help with time management, reading strategies, notetaking, test taking strategies/preparation, academic goal setting, and much more. We take a personalized 1-on-1 approach to figure out what works best for you to thrive as a student at Wooster and beyond.

Disability Support

With Disability Support meetings students can review new and existing requests for disability support and potential academic/classroom, housing, and/or dietary accommodations. When we meet we’ll speak about your particular needs while discussing what has worked for you in the past.

English Language Learning

English Language Learning (ELL) meetings help international students with language learning and/or adjusting to the American academic system. In these meetings you can receive individual tutoring and consultation to improve your English writing, reading, speaking, and listening skills.

Peer Tutors

Students may request a Peer Tutor online beginning in September 2021 for help in introductory academic courses covered by the Academic Resource Center and/or for English Language Learning. A guide to requesting a tutor is available on its respective webpage, but if you have difficulties requesting online, please stop by the APEX Front Desk in Gault Library’s lower level or reach out via email.
