I often see students who express concerns about some facet of their lives (academics, family, friends, living situation), and I refer many of them to the Counseling Services center on campus. Every student who is enrolled in more than six credits at Nevada pays a $35 Counseling Services fee. I hope that students will be more likely to use services that they have already paid for.

Counseling Services offers assistance to students in a number of areas, like substance abuse and international student concerns; and formats, such as individual counseling and couples counseling. If you are experiencing any emotional issues or have a concern about something that is impacting your relationships, academics or general well-being, please consider utilizing Counseling Services.

The Writing Center is one more campus resource aimed at helping students succeed. The Writing Center offers 30 or 60 minute appointments with writing tutors. These individuals, usually undergraduate or graduate students with a background in English writing, can review your work and help with any phase of the writing process including developing ideas, constructing outlines, basic editing, and reviewing final drafts. The Writing Center is another FREE service for students.

As a student I learned that anything that helped me get an earlier start on a project was a good thing. I’m sure that I’m not the only one out there who has grappled with the P-word, something that I hear about all the time in the advising office… procrastination. Anyway, I often share my own personal experience with students and tell them that, for me, tutoring was as good for learning concepts that I had missed in class as it was a way to keep on top of the homework. Turning to the Writing Center for help may do the same thing for you. Don’t wait until tomorrow to get started on your next paper, and don’t forget about the Writing Center.

The Mathematics Center is currently open in Ansari Business Building Room 610 from 8:00am to 5:00pm for walk-in tutoring. The Math Center features 20 computers with up-to-date math and statistics software and tutors to assist students with math and statistics. You must bring a student ID to use the Math Center!

You can access ongoing tutoring or drop-in tutoring for math and stats trough the Tutoring Center as well. The Math Center is a great option if you need help with a problem or concept, or if you need access to computers or software for a class.

This week I’ll be writing about academic and other resources available to students on the Nevada campus. These resources definitely pertain to the area of student success. Take advantage of them as needed!

The first resource is the Tutoring Center. The Tutoring Center provides an incredibly good deal for the services that students get. Appointment tutoring ($20 for five 50-minute sessions) allows for continuity throughout the semester with a regular tutor and tutoring time. I often recommend that students take advantage of appointment tutoring for math and statistics classes. This type of tutoring both supports what you are learning in the classroom and will help you stay on top of the coursework. Please note—it’s better to set up this type of tutoring early in the semester! The demand for tutoring goes up as the semester progresses. Get your session and tutor established as soon as possible!

You can also choose to stop by the Tutoring Center, the Joe Crowley Student Union, or the Knowledge Center for walk-in tutoring labs. This is good if you have a question about a specific problem or concept.

Additionally, the Tutoring Center website includes links to study skills resources. These websites cover note taking, test anxiety, time management, and other issues that many students struggle with.

There are even more types of tutoring available. Check out the Tutoring Center website for more information!
