Syllabus Statement

The Michael L. Jeffries, Sr. Center for Access and Academic Success (Jeffries Center) Academic Service Programs (ASP) offers free tutoring and academic services. Matched and drop-in tutoring along with Supplemental Instructions (SI), collaborative learning/study groups, and academic skills workshops are among the services featured in the ASP. The Jeffries Center services are designed to help students achieve in college. The level of rigor at the University of Illinois is different than in high school or community college. No matter how you performed before attending Illinois, there is always room to examine and hone your study skills. To learn more about these services, visit or stop by the Jeffries Center ASP located at 1103 West Oregon Street, Suite E, Urbana, IL 61801.

To make the most of your tutoring and workshop session(s):

  • Request a tutor at the beginning of the term.
  • Come to each of your tutoring or workshop sessions prepared. Preparation includes brining with you your textbooks, notes, and specific questions concerning the material. The more prepared, the more you will get out of the session.
  • Tutors do not serve as a substitute for our instructional faculty. They will not "lecture" or "re-teach." They will provide strategies to help you improve your approach to mastering your course content. Tutoring is not a substitute for missed classes. If you miss class, make sure you get notes from a classmate and meet with your professor during office hours.
