One on One Academic Support

Academic Support pic May 2014


SAS serves all Skidmore students interested in strengthening their academic performance and offers assistance in developing a wide range of academic skills and practices.  Students are welcome to meet individually with professional staff for one-on-one support.  These meetings are meant to meet the needs of each individual student and often focus on improving problem solving and time management skills, exploring test taking strategies, strengthening note taking skills, and offering guidance regarding specific assignments.  One on one support is available as needed for students at all levels free of charge.

SAS staff members are also available to students to help adjust to college life, transition into Skidmore community, and manage academic schedules.  SAS staff members assist students to address questions about living with roommates, working with faculty members following absences or missed deadlines, time management, and navigating academic demands and personal stressors.  While SAS consultations and support will typically focus on students' academic lives and goals, staff members in SAS can also help students connect with other relevant campus resources including the Counseling Center, Spiritual Life, and Health Services.
